October 20: Politics and Public Health

November means two things in Maine, Hunting Season and Elections.

This year voters have the opportunity to select our next governor, representatives for two congressional districts, the entire state house of representatives and state senate, numerous local offices, three statewide referenda. This is a big election year and is shaping up to be a show-down of radically different views of our future and the role of government in our lives. What is the role of Maine’s government in health care access and quality, tackling our rising problems with chronic diseases, keeping our environment clean and promoting healthy lifestyles?

Join us on Wednesday, October 20 at 10:00 AM for a dialog about Politics and Public Health. We’ll meet with candidates for a dialogue about public health priorities in Maine and the role of our state government in setting policy, providing services and helping Maine to be a healthier state.
Common Health airs the third Wednesday of every month from 10:00 – 11:00 AM only on WERU 89.9 FM. Learn more at www.commonhealth.org.

We invite your calls and email with questions and comments.
