A Special Offer from the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved
As a nurse practitioner who works with the underserved, I know that every day in this country, millions of people who lack health insurance fight to gain access to critical health services, while dedicated but underfunded health care professionals struggle to meet the burgeoning need for care. As the Associate Director for Programs for the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU), I also know that there is one organization that stands up for the clinicians who serve these vulnerable populations. ACU’s transdisciplinary approach to health care delivery promotes full engagement by all members of the health care team.
Because ACU values the role Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants play as primary care providers, we are offering a special introductory rate of $99 for individual membership for those who join ACU with this offer.
