Join Chris Dodd's Tour | February 7th

Now, although Dodd may be supporting his latest effort with good intentions, he is ready to bring monumental change to our health industry with the same type of government intervention and subsidization that brought down the housing market. Let's join him on his tour and let him know that our health cannot be put in jeopardy!

WHERE: Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, Westside Campus Center Ballroom, Located on the 2nd Floor of the Campus Center

WHEN: 2:30 pm, Saturday, February 7, 2009

The focus of this event will be on creating a preventative health care system. As we work to make quality, affordable health care accessible to all in this country, one of our goals must be to keep people healthy instead of only treating them once they’ve become sick. I hope you can make it.
