"The California Chamber of Commerce is a proud California Partnership for Access to Treatment (CPAT) member. We share CPAT's goals of serving as an educational resource for its partners and, ultimately, in finding common ground among California's diverse constituencies on healthcare-related issues. Ultimately, a healthy workforce...and a healthy California is in everyone's interest."

“Too often, business organizations involve themselves with healthcare issues by focusing solely on a measure’s cost to employers. But, businesses, large and small, rely on healthy and productive employees. By improving access to prescriptions drugs and increasing educational resources…work undertaken by the Partnership for Access to Treatment…we can ensure that our employees and our economy will remain vibrant and strong.”
– Brendan Huffman, President – Valley Industry and Commerce Association

“All businesses are concerned about rising health care costs and the well-being of their employees. The problem is so huge that the business community cannot solve these problems alone. Only with a collective approach and the hands-on involvement of healthcare, community, ethnic, and business organizations can we find a workable solution that will benefit all Californians.”
– Jaime Rojas, President and CEO – California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce

“California’s elderly and chronically ill need strong voices advocating for health care reform that will reduce barriers to vital services.

– W. June Simmons, CEO – Partners in Care Foundation

“Urban core communities served by the Greater Sacramento Urban League (GSUL) Workforce Development Center are populations considered to be the under-skilled and under-educated poor, working poor, ex-offenders, and families at or below the Federal poverty line. Statewide, this constituency has the greatest need for guaranteed access to affordable prescription drugs. The California Partnership for Access to Treatment’s goals align with our community health initiative benefiting our clients who are invisible to the national legislative agenda. Our partnership is an empowerment vehicle for change.”
- James C. Shelby, President & CEO, Greater Sacramento Urban League
