The Abbett Family Foundation is proud to be this year’s presenting sponsor for the MHC Hot Air Balloon Fest on Saturday November, 9th, 2019. This year’s balloon festival is in support of the MHC Healthcare Foundation’s goal to raise money for a a new Medical Residence Training Program to help address the national shortage of physicians, family nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
This program will help address 120,000 physician shortfall across America and more specifically, Arizona’s share of the physician shortfall of 1,100 to 1,300 doctors. Failure to address this shortage will result in increased waiting times to be seen by a doctor to months as well as worse healthcare and hospital bills for individuals and their families.
We are excited to support and be attending this year’s festival and hope to see a great turn-out from the Tucson community in support of this wonderful program. Visit the MHC Balloon Fest Website for more information: http://www.mhcballoonfest.com/
