Russ Carnahan is offering his constituents a chance to talk to him about health care issues.  Here’s your chance to urge him to co-sponsor Conyers’ Universal Health Care Bill, HR676.

Carnahan’s office sent out this announcement:

To Healthcare Leaders in the Saint Louis Region:

I would like to invite you to join me on Wednesday, August 29th, as I tour various health care facilities in the 3rd Congressional District.


As your United States Congressman and as someone who has worked in the health care profession, it was a great honor for me to support H.R. 3162, the Children’s Health and Medicare Protection Act (the CHAMP Act).  This bill reauthorizes and improves the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and also strengthens the Medicare program.

Please join me on Wednesday, August 29th, as I discuss this important legislation.  You are welcome to join me as your schedule allows throughout the day.  The itenerary is as follows:

1:00pm  Tour of Family Care Health Centers; 401 Holly Hills Ave,Saint Louis, MO

2:30pm  Press Conference/Availability with Children’s Hospital Location; TBD

3:00pm  Tour of Nurses for Newborns Facility; 7259 Landsdowne Saint Louis, MO

5:30pm  Ribbon Cutting at Lemay Childhood Center;  9828 South Broadway St. Louis, MO

Please RSVP to Anna Jinkerson, my Congressional Outreach Coordinator about this event.  She can be reached by phone at (636) 937-8039 or by email at anna.jinkerson@mail.house.gov.  I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, August 29th.
