Public Policy Team Meets with FTC Staff Members

Public policy team members of the Sisters of Charity Health System met via video conference and in person yesterday with three staff members of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). On behalf of the Sisters of Charity employee family and those it serves, the ministry representatives learned more about the work of the Bureau of Consumer Protection and its resources. The bureau’s mission aligns with our ministries’ work to assist under-served populations. The FTC offers information to help Americans make better decisions and avoid scams--from warnings about payday lending pitfalls to protecting against identity theft to safeguarding one’s credit score. As a ministry, we join in advocacy with our neighbors and our own employees to help each other. The resources the FTC provides will be distributed in a number of ways: as topics in newsletters, and as literature giveaways at community health fairs, in SCHS-related lobbies or at partner events, as appropriate.
