Panetta to host roundtable on health care

Congressman-Elect Jimmy Panetta at the San Benito County Fair in early October.

Congressman Jimmy Panetta will host a health care leadership roundtable Saturday in Moss Landing.

In a press release, Panetta invites healthcare professionals, patient advocacy group representatives and members of the media to speak with him regarding the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

According to the statement:

“Congressman Panetta is convening the Health Care Leadership Roundtable with Central Coast health care professionals and patient advocates to hear their concerns regarding the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Republican majority in Congress has stated it will moved forward with legislation to repeal the ACA. Congressman Panetta hopes to use this information to work with his colleagues to repair – not repeal – the ACA and build upon the initial success of the health care law.”

Panetta will speak with members of the media at the end of the meeting.

The Health Care Leadership Roundtable takes place Saturday, Jan. 14 at 12:15 p.m. at Moss Landing Marine Labs (8272 Moss Landing Road) in Moss Landing.
