"Closing the Gap: Campaign for a Healthier Florida"

LWV Space Coast and Brevard Health Alliance sponsored Affordable Care Act Awareness Day on January 21st. The topic was "Closing the Health Care Gap" and included discussion of how to make sure that the legislature takes the 51 billion in federal funding to ensure that all Florida residents have access to health care security.

The ACA Awareness event was the first event held by the health committee as part of the Space Coast League's participation in a grant initiative by the state league called "Closing the Gap: Campagn for a Healthier Florida." Many events will be planned over the next few months.

With the 2015 Legislative Session beginning in March, it is essential that we educate Florida voters and businesses about the economic and social benefits of accepting the federal health care dollars.

Other states such as Utah, Tennessee, Wyoming and Arizona are taking these federal funds as a way to extend affordable healthcare to their low income families We must work to make the case for our state legislators to do the same.

There is a lot of work to do! Please consider volunteering to learn more about this issue and help educate the public. For more information, contact Heatlh Care Committee Co-Chairs Jo Shim at 321-636-4493, and Connie Dobrin 321-637-0884
