“On behalf of the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles community, I want to express my admiration for Jimmy Kimmel and his family for their incredible strength during such an emotional time. The Kimmels have become powerful advocates for the protection of high-quality health care services for all children, making it an urgent national priority. We are hopeful that Jimmy's comments during his recent monologue on the Children’s Health Insurance Program will galvanize citizens to contact lawmakers in both the House and the Senate to advocate for the funding of the CHIP Program, which is vital to millions of children nationwide.”
