Health Care: The Ills and the Remedies at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center
Join the League of Women Voters /ABC as they present a community education program, “Health Care: The Ills and the Remedies”. Dr. Dorothy Skye, MD/President of the LWV/Northwoods will begin the presentation. A response panel of local health care providers will lend a view of the challenges facing residents. This will be followed by audience participation.
This action-based program endeavors to identify key health concerns which informed voters need to keep in mind as they analyze platforms for the upcoming 2020 elections Ultimately, the hope is that the public voice will be positioned to demand that those elected will truly represent their constituents and act to assure quality health care be available to all citizens. The outcomes for many indicators of health, (e.g. maternal and infant mortality, cardiovascular disease etc.) place the U.S. poorly among all global developed countries. We CAN turn this around as Informed and vocal citizens working with elected officials!
