    Thank you for the feedback, Dr.Willson. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, CHIP covered 256,446 North Carolinians in 2016. Here’s the link“states”:%7B”north-carolina”:%7B%7D%7D%7D&sortModel=%7B”colId”:”Location”,”sort”:”asc”%7D

    Thanks for the update, Chip. Your presentation would have been enhanced if you had given the number of children in NC currently on CHIP.
    The last number I saw was 140,000. Pretty impressive. Let me know what the new number is so I can use it when I call Senators Burr and Tills.
    (I’m a little concerned about the graphic for bowtie briefing looking like Trump).
