Why We Can't Afford Not to Have Health Care for All - October 8

On Tuesday, October 8, League of Women Voters Roseville Area is partnering with Roseville Area Advocates for Minnesota Health Plan to hear speaker Rose Roach, Executive Director of the Minnesota Nurses Association, discuss a potential single payer health care system in Minnesota.   We will examine how a single payer framework might look, address some common misconceptions, and outline work needed to make this a reality.

Returning to a long-time venue, the Little Venetian Restaurant, 2900 Rice St., Little Canada, we will begin at 5:30 p.m. with time for conversation and dinner.  Attendees will be able to order one of these four meals:  Fillet of Haddock, $13.50; Cheese Ravioli, $11; Meat Lasagna, $11.75; or Unlimited Salad Bar, $8.75. To make a reservation, call Stephanie DeBenedet at 651-483-1006 or email jdebenedet@msn.com by Thursday, Oct. 3.

Members not able to attend the dinner are welcome to join us from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. for the program. The presentation is free and open to the public.
