Also attending will be State Sen. Judy Emmons, 33rd District, who will bring information on the proposed new bridge to Canada and other matters of interest.
Duane Miller, chief finance officer for Carson City Hospital, will be present to give his views on the financial aspect of Obamacare and how it would affect the medical institutions and individuals. Dr.. Ronald Steury of Sheridan Community Hospital also will present his views on Obamacare.
