Gubernatorial Forum on Healthcare

On Oct. 1, we bring you a special health care forum with the Gubernatorial candidates.  Democratic contender Maggie Hassan and Republican Ovide Lamontagne join us to discuss where they stand on everything from the expansion of Medicaid, to the hospital tax to how they might address the issues of mental health, preventative care and substance abuse if elected.  Our forum is in partnership with the New Hampshire Health Policy Council, which consists of the New Hampshire Hospital Association, the New Hampshire Medical Society, the New Hampshire Healthcare Association and the Home Care Association of New Hampshire.
