Representatives of our 110 member organizations and chapters, as well as other HCAO activists from around the state will attend (you are invited, register now!), review progress during the 2015 legislative session and plan next steps.

Also at the May 30 HCAO Annual Meeting, we will get updates from Senator Michael Dembrow on progress on SB 631 (the Health Care for All Oregon Plan), HB 2828 (the Health Care Study Bill) and other legislation supported by HCAO during the 2015 legislative session.

Finally, members will have the opportunity to consider and vote on critical bylaw revisions and a slate of leaders including the Board of Directors and Officers. Nominations are also accepted from the floor.

The Jefferson Center presents The Healthcare Movie in Ashland

The Jefferson Center is pleased to present an informational program including a free showing of the documentary

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER  28, 2014

4:00-6:00 PM

PIONEER HALL, 73 WINBURN WAY, ASHLAND (Lithia Park)

Synopsis

We, in the United States, pay more for healthcare than comparably developed nations and yet often have worse health outcomes.  Other countries have very different systems of paying for health care.  We have options for change.

After the Movie

The film will be followed by an opportunity to explore questions about the challenges of our present healthcare system and what an expanded Medicare for all might be like. This discussion will be led by a panel from HCAO (Healthcare for All Oregon) including Wes Brain of Ashland, Mike Huntington M.D. and Tim Roach from Corvallis, and Lee Mercer from Silverton.
