Red Deer Citizens Forum

On March 6, 2019, Friends of Medicare and Public Interest Alberta hosted a Citizens' Forum on Health Care and Seniors' Issues in Red Deer, Alberta at the Golden Circle Senior Resource Centre

The event had three moderated panels with discussion on the need for a universal pharmacare program, expanded capacity and staffing in our hospitals, and major improvements to the state of long-term care for Alberta's seniors.  

The event was extremely well-attended, with over 100 citizens listening to experts and advocates from across the province, and voicing their concerns and calls to action.
