GLEN ELLYN - The first of a series of national townhalls on the Affordable Health Care Act will be held Saturday at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, starting at 12:30 PM. The meeting, hosted by Independent Women's Voice (IWV), will feature panels of healthcare experts, insurance industry leaders, medical professionals, and politicians. The MyCancellation.com project is to advocate on behalf of those who have lost their health insurance due to ObamaCare and to bring to life the stories of the millions affected.
Saturday's panel, featuring healthcare policy expert Naomi Lopez of the Illinois Policy Institute, insurance leader C. Stephen Tucker of Small Business Insurance Services, Inc., and medical professionals, will be held in the College of DuPage's Student Resource Center, Room SRC 2000.
In the matter of weeks after launch, My Cancellation amassed tens of thousands of social media followers and contributors. People from across the country have submitted their stories, photos, and cancellation letters to www.mycancellation.com, its Facebook page and on Twitter.
Other states on the tour include North Caroline, Louisiana and Arizona, with more to follow. The meetings are open to the public and free of charge. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel, have their stories heard, meet neighbors and friends that have also had their health care plans cancelled, and get educated on the costly implications of the federal health care law.
