340B Health

340B Health executive Council

Safeguarding the 340B program is a key part of 340B Health’s mission, and our Executive Council plays an essential role in these advocacy efforts. Council members, currently over 70 hospital C-Suite executive strong, educate the media and lawmakers about 340B's importance to their institutions, patients, and communities at large. The 340B Health team partners with Council members to draft and place op-eds, letters to the editor and journal articles about the importance of the 340B program. We also help connect Council members with their Congressional delegation, so lawmakers can hear from hospital leaders directly about the value of 340B in their community.

While the time commitment is small – just bi-annual teleconferences/webinars and ad-hoc projects – the impact is powerful. It’s also a great way to stay informed on the 340B program.

Current members of the Executive Council are listed below. If you are interested in joining the Council, contact Richard Sorian at richard.sorian@340bhealth.org or (202) 536-2285.
