Tuesday night, September 24th from 6-7 pm, Dr. Terry Cline and Andrew Rice will take a look at the emerging Affordable Healthcare Act nationally and locally. The public is encouraged to attend and bring questions.
Posters appeared along Automobile Alley http://oklahomawatch.org/oklahoma-watch-out/ last week, notifying the public of this unique forum. RSVP to the event by emailing Evie Holzer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event will be held at KAMPS 1910, a restaurant in Midtown OKC, just East of Automobile Alley, @ #10 NE 10th Street. http://www.kamps1910cafe.net/about/our-story/
Cline having served locally, nationally and internationally in health and mental health/addictions forums and the Rice having served in similar environments in totally different roles.
These two gentlemen seek to respond to the public questions regarding the status of "Obamacare" in Oklahoma and possibly considering aloud what is needed in Oklahoma at this time for proper health coverage, as currently Governor Mary Fallin has refused to participate in the Affordable Care Act as planned.
As Cline and Rice are calling for public questions, here is a smattering of articles that possibly could define some questions the public might have.
Article 4. FOUR Oklahoma Groups granted federal funding to reveal the Affordable Healthcare Act to Oklahoman's. http://nnlm.gov/scr/outreach/aca.html
The Role of Libraries in the Affordable Care Act

Looks also like 4 Oklahoma Colleges filed suit against the HHS mandated contraception clause http://religionclause.blogspot.com/2013/09christian-universitites-suecha...
And not clear how the whole Fallin service refusal kit and kaboodle fits with this http://www.examiner.com/article/unconstitutional-oklahoma-legislative-de...
The event promises to be interesting and informative, as both men have very different perspectives and personalities if nothing else.
