Should Idaho Expand Medicaid? A Discussion

Oct 3, 2018

One of the biggest decisions Idahoans will make in the upcoming Nov. 6 election is whether or not to expand Medicaid. Boise State Public Radio News has been following the initiative over the last several months. The ballot initiative has also garnered national attention, including from the journalists at HuffPost. Please join HuffPost and Boise State Public Radio for this conversation about health care in Idaho. 

Who: Panelists will include state Rep. Christy Perry, the co-chair of Idahoans for Healthcare; House Majority Caucus Chairman John Vander Woude; community member Donna Scranton; and HuffPost senior reporter Jonathan Cohn. The discussion will be moderated by James Dawson of Boise State Public Radio. 

When: Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6:00 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. 

Where: Yanke Family Research Building

The event is part of HuffPost's "Listen to America" RV tour — a two-week journey through five Western states (four of which we didn’t manage to visit last year) to talk about issues affecting communities in California, Nevada, Idaho, Arizona and Colorado.
