AARP Brings the Health Reform Facts to the State Fair

ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Grab your corn kernels and get ready to cast your vote for why you think the nation needs health reform. AARP invites you to take part in the national health reform debate right here at the Minnesota State Fair.

Whether it be to lower healthcare costs, make health care more accessible, improve Medicare or lower prescription drug costs, State Fair -goers can share their opinion by voting with corn kernels at two different locations at the Fair:

  • On Saturday, Sept. 5 from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., AARP will be in Carousel Park at the Minnesota State Fair with health care reform information for fairgoers and health screenings provided by Walgreen's.
  • Every day of the Fair, visit AARP's booth in the Education Building, and cast your kernel. Fairgoers can also get helpful facts about the debate and share their opinions on comment cards.

"Minnesotans are very engaged in the current national debate on health reform, and we think it's important to give people the facts and the opportunity to state their opinion and share their story," said AARP State Director Michele Kimball.

The State Fair is just one way AARP is reaching out to Minnesotans about this debate. AARP has been conducting a series of "teletown" hall meetings with its members to discuss health care reform throughout August. Thousands of members across the state have joined in these conversations to learn more about how the proposals will affect them -- and to ask questions about health reform.

"Our health care system costs too much, wastes too much, makes too many mistakes and gives us back too little value for our money," said AARP State Director Michele Kimball. "AARP wants to see meaningful health reform
