Special guest speakers address this and more at the
League of Women Voters® of Bellingham/Whatcom County monthly meeting
Bellingham Public Library
Saturday November 16, 2013
Elya Moore - Deputy Director, Whatcom Alliance for Health Advancement
Desmond Skubi - Executive Director, Interfaith Community Health Center

Along with a video of interviews with local "people on the street" about their healthcare needs, speakers will discuss both the need and impacts the Act has already had, and likely future impacts on patients, healthcare practitioners and businesses.
