Two Health Care Unit Meetings

The Health Care Study Committee was charged at the 2013 LWVAA Annual Meeting to review and update the existing LWVAA positions on Health and Mental Health Services. Committee members spent the past year investigating the state of health care and mental health care in Austin and Travis County. They are now reporting the changes they are proposing to the existing position statements. The membership must vote at the Annual Meeting on whether or not to accept this study group’s revisions. These two Unit Meetings are scheduled to prepare you.

LWVAA members are strongly encouraged to attend one of these two Unit Meetings:

either Thurs., April 10, 7:00 pm at the home of Judy Parken, 7917 West Rim Drive, 78731

or Mon., April 14, 10:15 am at the Howson Library, 2500 Exposition, 78703

Click here for the proposals (as well as the current language) from the April Voter. (Scroll down.) Hard copies will be distributed at the Unit Meetings. But it is strongly advised that members read the proposals and compare them to the existing language prior to attending a Unit Meeting.
