Security Planned For Upcoming Health Care Town Hall

Steve Terrell wrote the other day that New Mexico's Congressional delegation won't have any health care town halls. But that doesn't necessarily mean we'll be immune to the crazy virus that's infected other parts of the country over this issue. Check out the last line of this press release announcing an August 26 health care forum by the Santa Fe County League of Women Voters:
The League of Women Voters believes it is important to hold a forum in order to offer the insights of experts on the proposed legislation. In order to ensure that questions are heard, the audience will be given the opportunity to submit questions to the panelists on notecards. Security will be provided.

That's SFR's emphasis, there.

In case you missed the latest crazy, here's it is:



Event details after the cut.



WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM? HOW CAN WE FIX IT?

The League of Women Voters of Santa Fe County will hold a forum on our nation's health care system from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, August 26, in the Jemez Rooms, Santa Fe Community College, 6401 S. Richards Avenue.

The myths and realities of our current system, the major bills before Congress, what the proposals mean for you, and the likelihood of reform will be discussed.

The forum panel includes Dr. Jill A. Rhymes, private-practice internist/geriatrician with experience at a Veteran's Administration center; Lydia Pendley, president of Health Action New Mexico, a coalition founded in 1995 which works for affordable, accessible, and accountable care for every New Mexican; Judy Williams, who has a doctorate in public welfare policy and economics and over 30 years experience working on federal and state health care policy, including Medicare; and Andrew Black, field representative for Senator Jeff Bingaman. Senator Tom Udall and Representative Ben Ray Lujan have also been invited to speak.

The League of Women Voters believes it is important to hold a forum in order to offer the insights of experts on the proposed legislation. In order to ensure that questions are heard, the audience will be given the opportunity to submit questions to the panelists on notecards. Security will be provided.
