Health Policy Grand Rounds Welcomes Kuster, Bass on Oct. 31
October 30, 2012
Dartmouth-Hitchcock will host the latest in its ongoing series of conversations on health care and health policy with back-to-back visits from the opponents in New Hampshire's 2nd District Congressional race Wednesday, Oct. 31.
The Health Policy Grand Rounds series will welcome Democrat Ann McLane Kuster at 8:30 a.m. in Auditorium G of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH.
Kuster will be immediately followed by Republican incumbent Rep. Charles Bass at 9:30 a.m., also in Auditorium G of DHMC.
Both appearances will follow Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Health Policy Grand Rounds format. Each candidate will deliver remarks focused on health care policy, and then take related questions from Dartmouth-Hitchcock employees.
The Health Policy Grand Rounds program is modeled after Dartmouth-Hitchcock's clinical grand rounds, to offer an educational forum for staff on current health care and health policy issues. The candidates' events are closed to the public, but are open to the media. Details on media availability for Kuster and Bass will be available at each event.
Bass' and Kuster's appearances are also part of Dartmouth-Hitchcock's "We Care, We Vote" initiative, part of a nationwide effort by healthcare providers to increase voter turnout and awareness.
Space in the auditorium is limited, and advance notice of your intent to cover this event is appreciated. Please contact Rick Adams at (603) 653-1913 or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to indicate whether or not you'll be attending.
