I recently had the opportunity to participate in Healthline's Live Town Hall: Healthcare Policy Edition. (Disclosure: I was compensated for my time and expertise.)
Americans are so stressed about healthcare services and costs these days. This Town Hall discussion featured healthcare industry officials and patient advocates to have a non-partisan discussion of the healthcare issues that matter most in the upcoming election. Check out the full Town Hall Discussion below.
I've heard patient advocates say "vote like your life depends on it" - because it does!
Get out there and VOTE!

"For some of us, we no longer have access to daily help we rely on, whether that’s childcare or someone who helps with household tasks or, in my case, both. Many of us are missing routine appointments that help us manage life with RA, like physical therapy, massage therapy, exercise class, or talking to a therapist. And I know I’m not the only one who feels worried that COVID-19 represents extra risk for people living with chronic illness. For a lot of us, this pandemic has been a time of much-added stress and anxiety, so I wanted to share some of the things I am doing to help myself stay calm and resilient."

Around the world, parents and caregivers are finding themselves staring down the calendar at extended school closures – and even the possibility that schools won’t resume at all this year....As a mom of 3 small children – ages 7, 5, and 2 – who also works part-time from home, trying to figure out how I’ll manage my work and homeschooling is very overwhelming. And, as a mom living with rheumatoid arthritis, the challenges I face in managing my own health and energy levels make the situation even more complicated.
