Another group making it’s presence felt in the health care debate is the North Carolina Health Access Coalition, Rob Christensen reports.
The non profit advocacy group has been holding meetings and round table discussions across the state trying to build public support for proposals in Congress to make health care more accessible.
With Congress expected to vote soon on President Barack Obama’s proposals, the group has held three dinner roundtables on national health reform for small business owners and workers in Durham, Pittsboro and Greensboro with seven to 18 owners at each in the last two months, according to Adam Searing, who heads the group.
It has also held several public forums discussing health reform including one planned next Thursday, July 23rd in Greenville.
Searing said his group has held meetings in Boone, Garner, Greensboro, Henderson, Morganton, and Wilmington, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, and Raleigh.
