Tell Congress: It's time to forgive student loans for frontline healthcare workers
Health care professionals have spent the last year risking their lives every day for people across this country. These frontline workers are a critical part of our nation's health care infrastructure — and they need our support.
That's why AAMC Action supports the Student Loan Forgiveness for Frontline Health Workers Act, H.R. 2418. This bill, now before Congress, would forgive all public and private student loans for health care workers who have made significant contributions to patient care, medical research, and testing during the COVID-19 national emergency.
Many AAMC Action members emailed Congress in support of this issue last year, and we need you to do it again. If you're with us, write to your elected officials today. Tell them you're just one of thousands of members of the AAMC Action community who wants our leaders to co-sponsor the Student Loan Forgiveness for Frontline Health Workers Act—or, if your member is already a co-sponsor, thank them for their support!
