Boozman to Thank Health Care Heroes, Hear About COVID-19 Needs During Hospital Visits Around State

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) will visit hospitals and talk to frontline health care heroes throughout the state next week as they continue to provide care for Arkansans during the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Boozman will share his gratitude for their dedicated efforts and learn more about their needs and concerns as Washington works on additional coronavirus relief packages. The senator has supported each phase of legislative relief passed by both chambers of Congress in response to the coronavirus, which has sent millions of dollars to Arkansas medical providers since the crisis began.
