Rep Novak Presented with Free and Charitable Clinic Legislative Award


MADISON- The Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (WAFCC) named Representative Todd Novak (Dodgeville) as the recipient of its prestigious Legislative Champion Award. This award recognizes Representative Novak's exceptional commitment and contributions to the advancement of free and charitable clinics throughout Wisconsin.

The WAFCC presents this award annually to a legislator who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and dedication to improving access to healthcare for the underserved and uninsured populations in the state.

"I am deeply honored to receive this recognition from the WAFCC," said Novak. "It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of many who believe in the importance of accessible healthcare. I am committed to continue working with the WAFCC and other stakeholders to ensure that every Wisconsinite has access to the healthcare clinics that they need."

Representative Novak increased funding for free and charitable clinics in the state budget, expanded access to care for uninsured individuals, and improved the quality of care provided at these clinics. This year’s biennial budget awarded $1.5 million in new money to 27 clinics across the State of Wisconsin.

“Six years ago, WAFCC started with $90,000 in funding their budget. Today, because of our work, we were able to achieve $1.5 million in this year’s budget for free and charitable clinics across Wisconsin,” said Novak. “My district has one free and charitable clinic in Dodgeville that provides provide basic health care for those who cannot afford or access to medical services in Iowa County and surrounding areas. I want to thank Michael Schwartz (Board of Directors) and Dennis Skrajewski (Executive Director) for their work on this vital issue.”
