Health Care Study 2015-2017

2015-2016 Health Care Study Materials and Consensus Questions

At the LWVSC Convention on April 26th, 2015 delegates voted to conduct a Study (2015-17) of healthcare in support of development of state-level positions for advocacy. Since our needs and experience with healthcare may be vastly different a series of Healthcare Conversations around the state were held and coordinated by members of the Healthcare Caucus which met at the Convention.

For the first year, board member and healthcare specialist David Ball led a series of "healthcare conversations" across the state to prepare for this study and help to identify relevant questions. Then in the summer of 2016, David prepared his draft report for the LWVSC Board to review. The board finalized the study in September with its consensus questions to be answered and returned to the state board by March 1, 2017 before our April 28-29th, 2017 Convention.
