Smart Talk Friday; Democrat Rowley for the 13th District; Wolf administration unveils health reform plan

WITF’s Election 2020 coverage on Smart Talk continues Friday with a candidate running for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Joining us on Friday’s program is Democrat Todd Rowley who is running for the 13th Congressional District.

The 13th district includes portions of Adams, Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Cumberland, Franklin, Fulton, Huntingdon, Somerset, and Westmoreland counties. The incumbent running for reelection in the 13th Congressional District is Republican John Joyce.

These conversations with candidates are designed to give voters an opportunity to hear where candidates stand on the issues before this fall’s election.

Healthcare coverage and the rising costs of care are a hot election issue in 2020.

The Wolf administration recently announced a health reform plan with a goal to improve affordability and access, and one that might also tackle the health care disparities in under-served communities.

Joining Smart Talk to offer details of the plan are Dr. Doug Jacobs, MD, Chief Innovation Officer with the Department of Human Services and Antoinette Kraus, Director Pennsylvania Health Access Network.
