Today, Congressman Dennis Cardoza (D-CA) fought against legislation that would threaten existing funding to train new physicians in the Valley and other medically underserved communities. H.R. 1216 would directly affect the Valley Consortium for Medical Education in Modesto, which was designated a 2011 Teaching Health Center by the federal government and has already received $625,000 to begin training primary care medical and dental residents. The Valley Consortium is eligible for up to five years of funding provided through the Affordable Care Act ("health care reform") passed last year, but H.R. 1216 would threaten that funding. To highlight the devastating effect H.R. 1216 would have on medically underserved communities like the Valley, Congressman Cardoza offered an amendment requiring a study of the impact that eliminating the funding would have on the number of physicians trained by this program.
