Democrats in Genesee County are inviting Democrats in neighboring areas to a forum on health care in Fenton on Thursday, May 21.
The event, sponsored by the Southern Genesee County Democratic Club, will feature Olivia Boykins, Congressman John Conyers' Special Assistant, and Dr. James Mitchiner, representing Physicians For A National Healthcare Plan, to lead the conversation, with questions and answers from the audience. Conyers has introduced a bill calling for a single-payer health care system.
The event will begin at 7:00 at the Fenton Community Center at 150 S. Leroy in Fenton.
Christine Jaranowski, chair of the club, said the event is an effort to start the dialogue on health care reform as President Obama begins moving forward on the issue.
