About our organization:
TBHC is a membership-based, non-partisan, non-profit organization that promotes and advances the health and wellness of vulnerable populations through community collaborations. The TBHC Advocacy Committee developed the Healthcare Voter Guide to raise awareness about these issues and inform TBHC members and the general public about each candidate’s proposal to address them.
