Health Care Town Hall Meeting in Chicago Feb. 17th - Disabled, Advocates on Proposed Medicaid Cuts

Access Living's Health Care Team is hosting a Town Hall to raise awareness about Federal Legislation that would wipe out Medicaid as we now know it and offer less money to states to use Medicaid Services.

WHEN: February 17, 2017 from 1:00 to 4:00

WHERE: Access Living at 115 W. Chicago Ave.
Chicago, IL

WHO: You are invited and we welcome guests

WHY: Only action by people with disabilities and our
allies is likely to prevent the severe cuts
proposed to Medicaid

WHAT ELSE: We will have policy experts explain the threat, we will have consumers tell their Medicaid stories and we will have an update on regulations making it easier to get tires and batteries for wheelchairs.

ACCESS LIVING is wheelchair accessible. We will have a sign language interpreter. Please refrain from scented personal care products. We will have PA services. SNACKS will be served. For more information contact Tom Wilson @ 312.640.2125 or tomas@accesliving.org
