The Grant County Democratic Party is sponsoring a series of election year forums on some of the important issues at stake in the Presidential and state contests. Held on third Thursdays every month through October, the first forum is “Health Care in 2012: Winners and Losers.”

This forum will be held on Thursday, January 19, 6:30 pm, at WNMU Miller Library. It is free and open to the public.

Dr. Gilda Baeza Ortego, Director, WNMU Library, will moderate the forum. Speakers include Charlie Alfero – Director of HMS-Center for Health Innovation and Director, National Center for Frontier Communities; Dr. Victor Acquista, Chief Medical Officer, Fort Bayard Medical Center; Christine Brickley, Family Nurse Practitioner and Associate Professor WNMU School of Nursing;
WNMU Professor Dr. Robert Rickle with students from his Social Welfare Policy II class; and Carolyn Smith, Silver City Food Coop Community Liaison.

Some of the crucial areas of concern that the panelists will address are the US Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act, changes in Medicare reimbursement, and health reform in New Mexico. They will also consider if the the 2012 Election will set health care reform back or allow it to move forward.

Although the forum is sponsored by the Democratic Party, event organizers seek a wide range of views and diverse opinions. “We feel that an educated electorate is vital to a well-functioning democracy, and we invite people of all political persuasions to listen and participate in our Third Thursday forums,” says Mary Hotvedt, Chair of the Grant County Democratic Party.

Food will be served after the event.

The next forum on February 16 will concern issues of race and ethnicity. For more information, contact 388-9557.
