A daylong conference Saturday will delve into the various aspects of competing and complimenting healthcare proposals making their way through Congress and the Pennsylvania Legislature. The event at CMU begins at 9:00am and runs till 4:30. State Senator Jim Ferlo and Pittsburgh City Councilman Bill Peduto will be among those conducting classes at the free event. Ferlo says this is a great way for those who are passionate about the idea of a single payer approach to healthcare reform to get the latest information. He says they will then be armed to go out and promote the cause among fellow citizens and to lobby their elected officials. The event at Doherty Hall is sponsored by Pennsylvania for Single-payer Healthcare (PUSH) and co-sponsored by Healthcare4ALLPA.org. A free lunch will be provided to anyone who pre-registers but registration is not required to attend.
