October 12 Virtual Event: “2022 Midterm Elections and Health Care: What to Watch”
On Wednesday, October 12, USofCare presented “2022 Midterm Elections and Health Care: What to Watch” with expert hosts and panelists:
Lisa Hunter, Senior Director of Policy and External Affairs, USofCare
Caitlin Westerson, State External Affairs and Partnerships Director, USofCare
Khelan Bhatia, Director of Voter Engagement, AARP
Lucy Culp, Executive Director, State Government Affairs, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The group explored what is at stake for health care in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections and what effects its results may have on the state and federal landscape in 2023. The panelists shared an analysis of older voters and their anticipated impact in November, as well as had a thoughtful discussion analyzing key and federal state risks and opportunities — and explored key federal and state races from a health care perspective.
A major part of USofCare’s work is to bring together diverse groups from across the health care space in our mission to build a better and more equitable system. These connections help us keep striving for a system where people’s coverage is dependable and understandable, their care is personalized, and where we can all have certainty that our care will be affordable.
Thanks to our panelists for joining us!
