This year is off to a busy start. We are on the front lines educating colleagues and patients about the healthcare law and providing information about Open Enrollment, which ends Feb. 15.
SEIU nurses are also sharing lessons learned to protect the health and safety of their communities. They are taking action to defend the healthcare law in Washington, D.C., against the latest attacks in Congress and preparing for the next Supreme Court fight.
In this issue, we have some great information to highlight including:
- Sharyce Greene, RN, of SEIU Healthcare PA shares how we can apply lessons learned from the Ebola crisis to other infectious diseases such as measles and influenza;
- Chris Barton, RN, of 1199NW gives us the facts as Congress considers making it easier for employers to not provide healthcare to employees; and
- As the March 4 Supreme Court hearing for King vs. Burwell approaches, we learn more about the implications of this case.
