Neurosurgery Urges Senate to Fund Pediatric Subspecialty Loan Repayment Program

On Aug. 25, the AANS and the CNS send a letter to Sens. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) asking Congress to fund the Pediatric Subspecialty Loan Repayment Program this year. Severe shortages of pediatric subspecialists are causing decreased access to care for children. Without federal investment in the pediatric subspecialty physician workforce, children will continue to:

  • Face long wait times for subspecialty care;
  • Travel long distances to receive that care; or
  • Go without care altogether.
