ADVISORY: HEALTH CARE TOWN HALLS TO FOCUS ON COMMUNITY NEEDS, COSTS & ACCESS

Sarasota and Port St. Lucie Events on Saturday Highlight Floridians’ Pleas to Congress

Congressmen Vern Buchanan and Brian Mast Invited to Participate

WEST PALM BEACH — Grassroots advocacy organization Floridians for a Fair Shake will sponsor Health Care Community Town Halls this Saturday in Sarasota and Port St. Lucie to hear Floridians’ concerns about needs, costs and access. The Trump administration and Congressional Republicans, unable to repeal health care outright, have been sabotaging health care resulting in rising costs, reduced access and general uncertainty about the health care system. The return of exclusions for pre-existing conditions puts more than 7.8 million Floridians at risk for losing their coverage altogether.

Both Health Care Community Town Halls will feature a panel of health care and policy professionals as well as the participation of local Floridians who will share their stories, discuss their challenges, and express their concerns for our health care system and what they expect from policymakers and elected officials.

Fair Shake has invited Congressman Vern Buchanan to the Sarasota Town Hall, and Congressman Brian Mast to the Port St. Lucie Town Hall.
