Coalition Urges Congress to Increase Funding for National Health Service Corps
Date:10/10/2007

RESTON, Va., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Medical Student Association (AMSA), the nation's largest, independent medical student organization, today announced that a coalition representing the majority of the nation's physicians and physicians-in-training is urging Congress to pass the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship and Loan Repayment Programs Reauthorization Act of 2007 (H.R. 2915).
