PRINCETON — As a part of the Princeton Public Library’s promotion on health care literacy, Voices from the Prairie hosted a panel presentation on the impact of health care funding on our local communities.

The panel of local health care experts included Pat Schou, executive director of the Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network; Annette Schnabel, CEO/president of Perry Memorial Hospital; Hector Gomez, fiscal director and assistant administrator of the Bureau County Health Department; and physicians Dr. Gregg Davis and Dr. Chris Blanford.

The program was moderated by Deb Roush, a health care navigator under the Affordable Care Act. After the presentations by the panelists, there was an opportunity for questions from the audience.

This program was part of the educational mission of Voices from the Prairie, a local grassroots citizens’ organization that promotes the importance of a well-informed citizenry. A video of the panel discussion and audience questions is available at www.facebook.com/voicersfromtheprairie.
