U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow was presented today with the National Association of Community Health Centers’ ‘Distinguished Community Health Champion Award’ for her commitment to community health centers, which offer critical health services to families who would otherwise go without care. Sen. Stabenow received the award from the Michigan Primary Care Association during a tour of Jackson’s Center for Family Health.
‘Many Michigan families rely on community health centers to receive basic medical services, and thanks to the great work these groups do, more patients are getting the critical health care they need,’ said Stabenow.
Sen. Stabenow has led the effort to open and fund community health centers across Michigan and announced in September more than $8 million for 36 community health centers in the state, including Jackson’s Center for Family Health. During the same month, she sent a letter to Sens. Reid and McConnell encouraging them to continue support for community health centers, which are facing funding reductions in the coming years.
Both the National Association of Community Health Centers and the Michigan Primary Care Association work to help make sure families in underserved communities have access to health care. Across the country, Community Health Centers serve more than 22 million people at more than 9,000 sites, including 240 sites in Michigan.

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, who participated in a February 2013, Congressional Delegation to Cuba, today issued the following statement on the Obama Administration announcement regarding the restoration of economic and diplomatic ties with Cuba following the release of American Alan Gross and others, including dozens of political prisoners.
‘As Chairwoman of the Agriculture Committee, I traveled to Cuba with a bipartisan group of Senators. I told President Castro that building a new economic and political relationship would only be possible if he released Alan Gross and other political prisoners. President Castro got the message, and I am thrilled that Alan Gross has been reunited with his family. Alan is a real fighter and I can’t thank him enough for his service to our country.
‘I support the policy changes President Obama announced today because they will boost agriculture, encourage manufacturing, and create jobs in America by increasing our country’s ability to export goods and products, including many made or grown right here in Michigan. I also believe that these actions will serve as the basis for lasting and meaningful political reforms in Cuba that will finally bring freedom to the Cuban people.’
