Another press release from the Student Peace Action Network at McHenry County College:
FORUM AT MCC TO EXAMINE WHAT IS REALLY IN HEALTH CARE REFORM BILLS
CRYSTAL LAKE—The controversial topic of health care reform will be addressed at a public forum this Wednesday evening at 7 PM at McHenry County College Conference Center. A panel of speakers will examine the actual content of proposals before Congress and de-bunk some of the many myths and misconceptions that have been circulating on the subject.
“America’s health care system is a disaster causing vast amounts of suffering and unneeded expense,” according to Molly McQueen of the Student Peace Action Network (SPAN) at the college, the principle sponsor of the program. “Now is the time to work together to correct its’ many flaws, however myths perpetuated by the health industry itself appear to be derailing this process by creating confusion in the public discourse. We have assembled a panel of experts to help sort fact from fiction.”
Jane Hansen who holds an MBA from the University of Chicago and a BA in economics from Wellesley will begin the evening by presenting an overview of the current health care system to provide a better understanding of the present health care crisis facing our country.
David Borris, proprietor of Hel’s Kitchen Catering, will address the need for reform in the health care industry to assist small business owners.
Dr. Hal Snyder, a volunteer organizer with Health Care for America NOW! has studied the various bills in Congress. He will dispel the many myths circulating throughout our country and tell the truth about the reform legislation.
John Gaudette, Illinois Director of Health Care for America NOW!, will explain what is happening in Congress and how citizens can have a say in the outcome.
The program is part of the Current American Issues series of informational programs co-sponsored by SPAN, McHenry County Pax Christi, and the McHenry County Peace Coalition.
The program is free and open to the public.
