Healthcare Reform: What's Here, What's Coming, and What's Missing

  • September 22, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • Univ. of MO Extension Center

The Affordable Care Act is transforming the American healthcare landscape, but does it go far enough? This presentation will compare our performance with the rest of the world, describe the important changes brought by the ACA, where it should go further, and how expanding Medicaid can still be part of the solution in Missouri. PNHP-STL chair and family physician Ed Weisbart MD will be speaking. He supports fixing the flaws in Medicare and providing that to all Americans throughout their lives.
 
FISH Food Pantry Collection this Sunday:
Food items are always welcome, particularly those high in protein, but we'll also focus on items for the household and personal care, including paper products. Supplies are running low at many local pantries so it's very important that we step up and help.

A Look Ahead:
Next weekend, Sept. 27-29, ESMR will be hosting a food and craft booth at Oktoberfest on the St. Charles riverfront in Frontier Park. Visitors, please come by; and members, watch for a sign-up list to help staff the booths. Due to this event, ESMR will be closed Sunday, Sept. 29th.

    Excellent data and information presented from actual physicians about why even with ObamaCare, the US health system is still very far behind that of other developed countries and how it makes bureaucrats rich instead of people heathy.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
