December 9, 2020 – CURA Strategies, an industry leader in communications and public affairs, today released CURA Health Policy Profiles: A Guide to the Freshman Members of the 117th Congress™. This free, comprehensive resource details the health policy positions, priorities and history of 65 new members of Congress and was created to introduce health advocates, journalists and government relations professionals to these new D.C. power players.
“As advocates and health communicators, we know how critical it is to understand who we’re trying to engage,” said Anne Woodbury, founder and CEO of CURA Strategies. “By making the Health Policy Profiles widely available, along with our other Art of Advocacy resources, we are living up to our ultimate purpose of helping to accelerate health care transformation.”
The result of over 300 work hours, each profile breaks down a member’s positions on the most pressing issues in the health care policy debate, including:
- Insurance coverage
- Prescription drug pricing
- COVID-19 relief
- Mental health & addiction treatment
- Military & Veterans health
- Women’s health
- Marijuana regulation & legalization
The nearly 150-page Health Policy Profiles report features exclusive analysis and content from CURA experts covering all angles of this new congressional class, which includes seven licensed medical professionals, 15 military Veterans and 18 members-elect of color. The report also highlights 10 members-elect to watch based on their professional background or history and willingness to promote reforms in the health care system.
CURA Strategies is proud to partner with SparkInfluence, the leading platform for issue advocacy professionals, to produce a web-based version of Health Policy Profiles. The site allows users to download the full e-book and view exclusive analysis of the new members of Congress and the health policy outlook of the 117th Congress. The website will soon roll out additional accessibility features, including a search function and a state-by-state map to make it easy for visitors to view and download the information that is most relevant to them.
“Health care is a heavy focus for many of the advocacy practitioners and associations who rely on our platform to help build their communities and affect change. We’re thrilled to be leveraging our data and tools alongside CURA’s expertise to make the valuable information in Health Policy Profiles easily accessible to all,” said Bryan Fratkin, founder and CEO of SparkInfluence.
