Republican Congressman Tom Price, M.D. of Roswell, who represents Georgia's Sixth District, an outspoken advocate for patient-centered healthcare reform, will address the physicians and medical professionals with the Healthcare Association of Forsyth County.
For the past three years healthcare reform has been a hot issue on Capitol Hill and across the United States, and Rep. Price has been on the battle field of the debate.
Rep. Price states on his Web site, "In Congress, I have introduced a plan to make health care affordable and accessible for every American. It also puts doctors and patients back in control of health care decisions.
It does not put Washington in control. Instead, it alters incentives to contain costs and ensures it makes financial sense for all Americans to be insured. By restoring the power of patient choice, we can return the system to one that is responsive, innovative, and of the highest quality."
Rep. Price will talk about the healthcare legislation that led to the creation of the "Affordable Care Act" (ACT). It is believed that ACT will have a potentially dramatic impact on millions of patients and physicians in the country.
First elected to Congress in November 2004, Rep. Price serves as chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, and maintains a leadership post in the House of Representatives. He is also a member of the Budget Committee, and the Ways and Means Committee.
Wednesday's event will be held at the , 7745 Majors Road in Cumming. Registration and networking begins at 6 p.m., followed by Rep. Price's presentation from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. For more information call the Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce at 770-887-6461. Refreshments will be available.
