Community Conversation on Healthcare 

How do we bring costs down while getting the care we need?

Submitted by Katherine K. Allen, UF/IFAS Suwannee County Extension, Family & Consumer Sciences Extension Agent IV -

     When:  June 22, 2021 from 10am-12pm

     Who:  The Suwannee River Regional Library in Live Oak and the UF/IFAS Suwannee County Extension office are teaming up to provide a Community Conversation on Healthcare.  How do we bring costs down while getting the care we need?

      Why:  High health care costs affect all Americans, often in deeply personal ways. This virtual conversation begins with a review guide is designed to help discuss how we should approach the issue. The guide suggests three options for deliberation, along with the trade-offs each might involve. Each option presents advantages as well as downsides to discuss.

     Cost: Free-but limited spaces available

      Where:  It will be a virtual meeting.  A computer or tablet is recommended as it is a chat-based format.  A healthcare issue guide will be sent via email prior to the chat to become familiar with the potential solutions.

     Anyone interested in improving the US health care system and helping decision makers figure out what should be the priorities for spending (holding down enormous costs, cover more people or maintain the choices and quality of care) should attend.  There are no easy answers, but democracy needs participation.  Your voice matters.  Let’s start exchanging views with others about important issues.
