Three guest speakers will join in covering the topic, “Health Care in America: The Plans Explained,” at the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County’s program on Saturday, February 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The program will be held at Peace Lutheran Church at 828 W. Main St. in Grass Valley.

Kimberly Parker, Executive Director of the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, will focus on the health care challenges of rural hospitals. She will also touch on the Affordable Care Act, upcoming seismic regulations, and the governor’s budget proposal.

Leah Schwinn, Chair of the Nevada County Chapter of Health Care for All, will explain the Affordable Care Act and its impact on health care for Americans, as well as the Public Option.

Mindy Oberne, former Chair of the Nevada County Chapter Health Care for All – CA, will explain Single Payer and how this will accomplish getting all Americans covered in one plan.

Both Oberne and Schwinn will then clarify where the top Democratic Party candidates stand on health care — their plans, the time frame for rolling out those plans, and how they envision paying for them.

The program is one of the League’s Second Saturday series of programs. The doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the program starts promptly at 10:00 a.m.
