State Rep. Cory Mason, R-Racine, will attend the Midwest Regional White House Forum on Health Care Reform in Detroit on Thursday.
The forum is hosted by Gov. Jim Doyle and Michigan Gov Jennifer Granholm and includes doctors, patients, providers and policymakers.
"In spite of the gains we have made, some Wisconsinites still face barriers to affordable, comprehensive, and quality health care," Mason said. "I welcome this opportunity to hear more from health care professionals, community leaders and the public about the health care concerns they face.”
The Regional White House Forums are an opportunity for Americans to voice their concerns and ideas about reforming our health care system. “The time for reform is now and these regional forums are some of the key first steps toward breaking the stalemate we have been stuck in for far too long,” President Obama said in a statement.
