A forum to explain the impact health care reform will have on rural citizens, communities and businesses will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 14, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at five locations around the state, including the Garrett County Health Department in Oakland. The public and press are invited to attend.
Presentations will originate from the University of Maryland College Park and be webcast to rural areas. Each location will have its own facilitators and conduct its own discussions.
There is no fee to attend any of the forums, but registration is required by Tuesday, Dec. 7. Registration is available online at rural.state.md.us.
“Setting up a location in Garrett County to view the webcast of the health care forum is an excellent way for all of us to learn more about the health care law and particularly how it will impact rural areas and each one of us,” said Garrett County health officer Rodney Glotfelty. “We are especially happy to be a participating site for the forum.”
Other viewing locations include the Eastern Shore Higher Education Center at Chesapeake College at Wye Mills, Wor-Wic Community College in Salisbury, College of Southern Maryland in Prince Frederick, and University of Maryland 4-H Center in College Park.
