League of Women Voters hosts health care talk

Submitted by on 1, March 22, 2010 – 4:45 amNo Comment

Looking for a little information and perspective on the federal health care legislation headed for President Barack Obama’s desk (Chron story here)? Well, the folks at the local League of Women Voters are here to help, by offering up an expert to give you the 411.

At 7 p.m. this coming Thursday, March 25, Deborah LeVeen will give a talk titled “The Struggle for National Health Care Reform: What’s at Stake?” in the social hall at Mastick Senior Center, 1155 Santa Clara Avenue. The talk is free and open to the public.

LeVeen taught health policy at San Francisco State University for 25 years. When she retired in 2006, LeVeen became involved in the fight for health care reform on both the state and national levels, working with an array of advocacy groups and offering presentations on her efforts.

LeVeen will talk about the key provisions in the House and Senate health care reform bills. “There has been a tremendous campaign of misinformation by the opponents of reform. We hope this forum will provide a clearer picture,” the event flyer says.

The two-hour forum will include time for questions and answers. More information is available on the League’s website or by calling 869-4969.
