State Legislative Candidates to Attend People’s Health Forum in Howard County

What: On Monday,

April 28, Howard County residents, community leaders, and candidates for state

office will attend the Howard County People’s Health Forum on Equal Access to

Care. It will be the first of several forums on health around the state.

During the event, Howard residents will share how they have

been impacted by the healthcare crisis. State legislative candidates will then

state their position on a series of questions, including: Do they believe

Healthcare is a Right? Do they support access to healthcare for all

Marylanders? What barriers do they see to enforcement of healthcare as a right

for everyone?

Where: St Johns

Baptist Church, 9055 Tamar Drive, Columbia,


When: Monday, April

28 at 6:30 PM

Who: Five Howard County

candidates are currently scheduled to participate in the event, including

Senator Ed Kasemeyer, Delegate Guy Guzzone and candidates Teri Hill, Clarence

Lam, and Rebecca Dongarra. The forum is being co-sponsored by Healthcare Is a

Human Right Maryland and the Health and Wholeness Ministry at St. Johns Baptist


Why: Even after the

Affordable Care Act is fully implemented, roughly 400,000 Marylanders will

still remain without healthcare. Tens of thousands more are, and will continue

to be underinsured and vulnerable to private-insurance-induced medical debt and

bankruptcy. The Healthcare Is a Human Right Maryland believes that all

residents should be able to gain access to necessary healthcare without

financial barriers.
