Wyden to Host Health Care Town Hall on Wednesday in Medford

Medford, OR - On Wednesday, February 20, 2008, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden will host a community conversation on health care in Medford. Wyden, co-sponsor of the bipartisan Healthy Americans Act, is inviting Southern Oregon residents to attend and share their personal experiences in dealing with the health care system.

"Health care consistently ranks at the top of the list of issues that concern average Americans," Wyden said. "Hearing the personal experiences of those who deal with today's health care system is vital to understanding what needs to be done in the future."
