In August 2022, Health Care Awareness Month returns as Nationally-recognized disabled patient advocate Peter Morley continues his advocacy. Along with organizations and partners at the federal, state and local levels, HCAM ’22 will create and amplify education, advocacy training, and digital content that raises awareness of how health care touches every issue in Americans’ lives.

HCAM’s ultimate goal is to lift up work being done on health care, and establish August as “National Health Care Awareness Month.” 

What Is Health Care Awareness Month?

Health Care Awareness Month, co-founded by Peter Morley and Rachel Brody (and with support from their canine companions Anjelika and Tony) , is an effort to raise awareness of the work being done to improve health care in America. It will feature panel discussions, advocacy training, informational sessions, digital content and videos featuring legislative efforts to improve health care, and more.

How Can I Help?

Taking part in Health Care Awareness Month can be as simple as posting to social media using our hashtag, #HealthCareAwarenessMonth, or as extensive as participating in HCAM and our partners’ seminars and other events.

Who is involved?

Led by Peter Morley and an all-volunteer team of activists, organizers and policy experts, Health Care Awareness Month’s founding partners include advocacy organizations and social amplification networks advocating for awareness and action on a wide range of policy issues.
