Description

Concerned about Health Care? Join the League of Women Voters of Berkeley, Albany Emeryville (LWVBAE) for a conversation with Hank Abrons, League member and retired physician, and Pat Snyder, member of Health Care for All, retired nurse, and Legislative Consultant for the Health Care Program of the LWV of California. They will share their backgrounds and experiences, discuss the current state of health care in California, and answer questions from the audience.

League President, Adena Ishii, will lead the conversation. This event is part of a larger effort to reinvigorate the Health Team. An active Health Team will enable the League to keep up with rapidly changing health care policies and conditions and respond promptly and effectively. Kick off this effort with us by joining this conversation.
