Questions About the Possible ACA Repeal?

Get the Facts and Share Your Concerns.

This is a first-of-its-kind town hall-style hearing on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which has brought healthcare coverage to 35,000 Sonoma County residents and more than 3.2 million across California.

You'll hear from the leading experts about potential policy and defense strategies in response to the new administrations proposed plans to repeal and replace the ACA. You'll also get a full briefing about what to expect from local hospitals, community health centers, patients and medical professionals.  We hope you can join this important conversation. Please spread the word and bring at least three of your neighbors! See you on February 25!
