Advocates to gather in response to recent attacks on North Carolinians’ health care
Raleigh, N.C. — In response to recent attacks on North Carolinians’ health care, Piedmont Rising, a North Carolina grassroots organization advocating for access to safe and affordable health care, will host a town hall in New Bern on Tuesday to address access to care, drug prices, and the latest response to COVID-19, caused by the coronavirus.
Town halls held this week—Tuesday in New Bern and Wednesday in Wilmington—are the latest in a series of successful health care town halls, hosted in towns across the state, including Asheville and Morganton.
The town hall meeting will offer local residents an open forum to ask questions, identify community concerns, and urgently call attention to the fight to defend lifesaving protections. Attendees are encouraged to share their health care stories to further humanize this important issue for North Carolina families.
