Rohrer to advocate for universal health care



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Jean Rohrer of Maine AllCare will talk about securing universal health care for all Mainers when she speaks at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 5:30 p.m.

Audience members will learn more about the statewide grassroots effort and how to get involved. “For other industrialized countries, this system is a reality,” a statement from AllCare said. “Other health care systems are less expensive, more efficient and more effective. With audience members’ help, universal, high-quality and affordable health care can be brought to Maine.”
