Gov. Tony Evers to WHA Advocacy Day Attendees: “It Has Been a Challenging and Breathtaking Year”
Gov. Tony Evers offered his sincere gratitude to the nearly 1,000 attendees of the 2021 WHA Advocacy Day event for “taking care of patients, communities and the entire state” during this past year, underscoring the challenges that COVID-19 created, particularly for health care providers.
Offering encouragement and noting the state’s progress in vaccinating its residents against the virus, Evers observed, “There is light at the end of the tunnel. Wisconsin is a leader in getting shots in arms.”
The governor highlighted his Badger Bounce Back plan, which includes improving public health care infrastructure, deploying more funding for hospitals and public health and expanding the BadgerCare program.
“The health and wellness of our state and economy depend on the health and wellness of our people,” Evers asserted in his closing remarks.
