Community Healthcare Forum – Westby


Wednesday, September 11, 2019

6:30–8:00pm

Logan Mill Lodge, 108 2nd St, Westby WI


The fourth in our series of summer/fall community forums on universal health care. Titled “Our Dysfunctional Healthcare System: Which Way Forward?”, the forum will feature a panel of three medical professionals: Dr. Mark Neumann, Emma Hood, RN, and Dr. Robert Jecklin.

The goal of this FREE forum series is for the citizens of Vernon County to have open, non-partisan conversations about improving our current healthcare system. A final forum will be held in Viroqua on October 16.

Neumann, a recently retired pediatrician who practiced in Africa, Madison and La Crosse from 1980 until 2019, will discuss what comprehensive single-payer coverage could look like in the U.S.

Hood, who grew up and trained in nursing in Canada, will contrast the Canadian single-payer system to the U.S. system.

Jecklin, who teaches in the public health programs at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, will discuss the reasons to improve healthcare in the U.S. Prior to teaching, his work included public health in South Carolina, HMO managed care in Chicago, American Cancer Society, and efforts to improve primary care including Scenic Bluffs Community Health Centers in Cashton.

VERNON COUNTY FAIR

Sept. 11-15



It's that time of year again – the Vernon County Fair is just around the corner and the Vernon County Democratic Party will be hosting a table with door prizes, great resources, and games for young and old! It takes a lot of people to set up, tear down, and staff the table, and that's where you come in. Sign up for a volunteer shift here and help us make this year's Fair a great one!

In light of the horrible events of domestic terrorism in El Paso and Dayton last weekend, we are posting this recent call to action from the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Please call your representatives and tell them you support these measures.

  

The NRA’s “Death Grip” in Wis


After Dayton and El Paso, the need for common-sense gun control measures has never been more urgent. But the NRA has put the Wisconsin Legislature in lockdown. As Rep. Chris Taylor said, “Republicans in the State Legislature continue to be in the death grip of the NRA.”

The power of the NRA to override the will of the people is a public health hazard and an assault on our democracy. That’s why, in addition to common-sense gun control laws, we need to limit the power of big money and dark money in our elections.


Please contact your legislators and urge them to support these bills.
