Please join MVHCA at the annual meeting, Monday, June 24, 7-9 p.m.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to elect a new chair and secretary as well as to review and celebrate the year’s successes. One such success is the passage of SB 770* on Monday, June 17, out of the Ways & Means subcommittee to the full committee with a do-pass recommendation. The MVHCA legislative committee has worked tirelessly to monitor several bills, including SB 770 over the course of the recent legislative session. Advocates have written their representatives and senators, met with them at the Capitol, and provided important testimony in favor of health care reform. A key supporter of the legislation is Senator James Manning (D-district 7). Dr. Manning was also a keynote speaker at the recent HCAO annual meeting. Join us to celebrate!
