Rallys for Healthcare Coverage in Columbus and Cleveland

The National Health Council will sponsor town hall meeting and news conferences on Wednesday, February 27 in Cleveland and Thursday, February 28, 2008 in Columbus, OH. The events start at 10:00am and end at 11:30am. There is no admission cost and no tickets are required.

People and families affected by disease and/or disability are strongly encouraged to attend.

The event will highlight the lack of effective coverage for millions of Americans and seeks to educate political candidates about the need for solutions. It also will feature patients' personal stories on this topic.

A "town hall" meeting will follow the news conference and highlight how people and families can become more involved in this effort. Presidential candidates and their staff will be invited to participate in the event.
