Richland Center Health Care Forum

A Health Care Forum will be held locally this month in Richland Center. Information about affordable health care options will be provided at the forum coming up Sunday, June 23, from 3:00 to 5:00 PM, at the Richland Hospital, lower level, Pippin Room #1. A focus of the forum will be ways for people currently without health insurance or with limited resources to obtain needed health care.

Richland Center physician Dr. Neil Bard will discuss the Richland Center free clinic that he founded and directs, providing details on its history and operation.

Dr. Mark Neumann, a recently retired La Crosse pediatrician, will discuss Medicare for All, explaining how a single payer, publicly funded, universal, comprehensive health insurance program for all Americans might work.

Kevin Kane of Citizen Action Wisconsin will discuss the proposed Medicaid expansion in Wisconsin, explaining what it is and what it could mean for residents of Richland County.

Time for questions/answers and discussion is planned following the presentations. For more information, contact organizer Marilyn Martin by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
