Will County Board Member to Speak on NACo Health Roundtable
Will discuss changing landscape of national healthcare
“I’m proud to represent Will County at this roundtable discussion,” said Winfrey. “I know access to and coverage by affordable healthcare is something many people are concerned about with potential changes to the healthcare system looming in the future. I will make sure to make the concerns of my constituents known at the national level.”
This roundtable discussion will address concerns by the Will County Board, the Will Grundy Medical Clinic, and the Will Grundy Center for Independent Living. Winfrey is a board member for all three organizations and hopes to put forward each organization’s concerns about proposed changes in healthcare funding. The roundtable is scheduled to take place from April 5 to 6.
