It’s why I joined my colleagues to pass legislation guaranteeing Illinoisans access to health insurance regardless of pre-existing conditions, like cancer or heart defects. This town hall meeting is intended to bring our community together to better understand how our policies on health care can positively impact every family in Illinois.”

Stuart’s event is co-hosted by St. John’s Community Care, which provides home and community-based healthcare services to veterans, adults with disabilities and the elderly.
