Announcement: Health Care for All NC Regional Forums


Raleigh, NC — Health Care for All NC, along with co-sponsors, NC Community Health Center Association, NC Nurses Association and the NC Pediatric Society will hold a series of 3 regional forums to seek public input and active participation in the strong need for systemic change in our health care system.

Health Care for All is coming. Polls show that the public is strongly in favor of systemic change. Currently, only the health insurance industry is well funded and focused on influencing the outcome. The rest of us need to identify our priorities and speak with a unified voice. The time to begin these efforts is now. The most effective time to affect change is between General Assembly Sessions.

Who Should Attend:
§ Members of our sponsoring organizations
§ Members of the General Assembly
§ Local elected officials
§ Health care provider groups, local organizations, advocacy, labor and consumer groups with a history of involvement in health care reform.
§ Representatives from the Leagues of Municipalities and Chambers of Commerce
