About Us


We promote grassroots advocacy and enlist the support of people and organizations that have influence in our community. Advocacy works to affect social and public policy change in order to promote both community health and healthy communities. Queen of the Valley Medical Center, in conjunction with the St. Joseph’s Health System, advocates for vulnerable populations by developing relationships with policymakers and by targeting education efforts.

Our primary advocacy goals include:

  • Promoting universal health care
  • Expanding health access for children
  • Promoting good nutrition for children
  • Elimination of child poverty
  • Increasing affordable housing
  • Compassionate welfare reform
  • Resolving health care workforce shortages
