Marshall statewide tour to focus on health care

From Congressman Dr. Roger Marshall's Office...

From Jan. 17 – 27, U.S. Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D. will be traveling across Kansas, speaking with health care providers and hospital administrators to share his efforts to ensure the survival of rural hospitals, lower health care costs and learn what Kansans need from their health care providers.

“As we begin a new year in Congress, I need to hear directly from Kansans to understand their ideas, concerns and questions on health care,” Rep. Marshall said. “The best way to do that is to hit the road, visit communities, large and small, and sit down with health care leaders and consumers. As a physician, I learned that if I stop to listen, my patients almost always had the answer. The same is true with all Kansans, and I’m excited to hear what they have to say.”

Rep. Marshall has been a leader in the Republican party’s efforts to deliver personalized, affordable and innovative health care for Kansans. For far too long, Kansans, especially those relying on the Marketplace for coverage options, have struggled to afford the rising costs and navigate the complexities of the Affordable Care Act.

His 11-day tour, which will span more than 1,300 miles, will include four public town halls and visits to communities in all four corners of the state. Along the way, he will visit with farmers and ranchers, business owners, military personnel and hardworking, everyday Kansans.
