To learn more about our story bank, or if you would like to distribute hard copies of our Tell Us Your Story form to local consumers, advocates, and health care professionals, please download this story bank brochure. We appreciate your support in helping us collect these valuable personal health care stories.
Are you one of the millions who will benefit from reform? Are you a young adult who can now stay on parental coverage? Have you had problems with lifetime caps in the past – now outlawed under health reform? Do you or a child have a pre-existing condition? Your personal story can help us demonstrate the human benefits of health care reform.
We’ve been collecting personal health care stories for years, illustrating the human need for health reform. Now that we’ve crossed the finish line, it’s time to educate the public about health reform and how it will affect them. The best way to do that is to tell your story, giving a real example of the status quo and the positive impact of change.
Here are a few examples of the kinds of stories we’re collecting:
If you think any of the above describe you, or if you think you’ll be helped by reform in another way, your story can go a long way in educating the public about reform. After we talk with you, you may have the opportunity to interview with a reporter, speak to or in front of elected officials, or share your story at an event. Of course, we will always talk with you before each opportunity, but the first step is to come forward.
