Can You Hear Me Now?
I love that old Verizon Wireless commercial from more than a decade ago where the telephone technician is wandering through remote locations on his cell phone asking the question, “Can you hear me now?” The point was to assure customers that Verizon’s wireless network had complete coverage and was committed to handling their communications. In thinking about communications in our free and charitable clinic space, I’m realizing that there is no Verizon out there providing assurance that our inspiring stories of helping others will be told. In fact, I’m also learning that nobody tells our stories better than we do. Your clinic staff members are the ones who are experiencing each and every day the wonder of a person without health insurance discovering that someone in their community cares about them.
 
So, NCAFCC has taken some affirmative steps to enhance our ability to communicate to local communities. We’ve retained Coburn Communications in Charlotte to help us get our message out. David Coburn and Liz Chandler are both seasoned journalists and communications professionals. In our preliminary discussions, they’ve already shown a keen interest in getting to know you and learning more about the inspirational stories that are happening in your clinic every day. Before long, you may see David or Liz showing up in one of your regional meetings to hear firsthand about your work. At NCAFCC, we are excited about the prospect of magnifying our voice across the state so that when we next ask “Can you hear me now?,” the answer will be “Yes, loud and clear!”
