Demystifying Medicare and Medicaid
Lunch & Learn Program
April 16, 2019
at 12:00 noon
HyVee on Grindstone, Club Room
(Rockbridge Shopping Center)

Guest Speakers:

Kay Barbee, Medicare consultant and former director of the Missouri Kidney Foundation
George Oestreich, MoHealthNet pharmacy director and former director of the Missouri Pharmacy Association

Medicare and Medicaid (aka “MO HealthNet” in Missouri) are the two largest government health care programs in the US. Attendees will learn the purpose of each, how they are structured, who and what they cover, and how they differ. We will also review the history and status of the programs nationally, and have an update on state level legislative action affecting the two programs under the Affordable Care Act in Missouri. This knowledge will inform our understanding of current state and federal healthcare policy debates.

This program is free and open to the public.
Although no lunch is provided, attendees are welcome to purchase food in the store or bring their own.

Replacing Boone County’s Voting Equipment

Replacing Boone County’s Voting Equipment
Tuesday, March 19, 2019
12:00 Noon
Lunch & Learn
Columbia Public Library Friends Room

 

Guest Speaker:
Brianna Lennon, Boone County Clerk

Boone County’s current voting equipment is over twelve years old and is in need of replacing. Voting equipment is a critical part of elections administration and a huge long-term investment, so it is important that voters, poll workers, civic organizations, and disability advocates are all a part of the conversation.

Prior to her election as County Clerk, Brianna served as an Assistant Attorney General in the Consumer Protection Division of the Missouri Attorney General’s Office before joining the Missouri Secretary of State’s office as Deputy Director of Elections and first coordinator of the Election Integrity Unit.

This event is free and open to the public.

Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch or purchase snacks at the library kiosk.
