Here at Liberty, we love to meet and get to know our members better. One way we are looking to increase these interactions is through occasional, regional "Member Meet-Up" gatherings. On the evening of March 20th, members of our Communications Department hosted the first meeting of this kind at a restaurant in Tampa, Florida. As it was our first event, we weren't quite sure what to expect, but we're glad to say the evening went wonderfully.
Last month, Liberty HealthShare Executive Director Dale Bellis spoke to a packed ballroom from the main stage at the American Conservative Union's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland. Liberty HealthShare does not endorse political movements, parties, or candidates, however, CPAC offers a great opportunity to share healthcare sharing with an audience that is invested in religious and economic liberty; principles we strongly feel should be promoted.
The moment he took the stage, Dale delved into what he believes are the fatal flaws in our nation's current system for healthcare delivery, homing in on the third-party-payer system in particular.
Late winter into early spring is a busy time for Liberty's communications and events teams. During February and March, they travel to and attend events in various cities throughout the nation, talking to members and potential members and sharing information about Liberty with leaders in the nonprofit, ministry, healthcare, and policy realms.
This year, February 27th-March 2nd, representatives from Liberty will sponsor and attend the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Proclaim 18 Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.
February 21st - 24th, Liberty HealthShare will sponsor and attend the American Conservative Union's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. This annual event draws thousands of attendees from all over the nation and we are excited to have a chance to interact with them.
Last Friday, January 19th, members of the Liberty HealthShare communications staff participated in the 45th annual March for Life, held in Washington, D.C. Starting at 1 p.m., we walked up Constitution Avenue with hundreds of thousands of other pro-life individuals to demonstrate our love and support for both pre-born babies and their mothers.
The March culminated on the steps of the Supreme Court, the same building where abortion on demand was legalized in 1973. Ever since then, the March for Life has been held on or around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade to demonstrate that for those who believe life begins at conception, this issue is far from settled.
January 19th is the 45th annual March for Life, held in Washington, D.C. The March is held every year on or around the anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on demand. What started in 1974 as a small, peaceful demonstration meant to mark this somber anniversary has grown to become the largest pro-life event in the world.
On Friday, thousands of pro-lifers from all over the United States will gather on the National Mall for a concert and rally.
After Liberty HealthShare Executive Director Dale Bellis' delivered a rousing speech at CPAC, he served as a panelist in a session entitled "Recovering from Obama Flu: What is the Prescription for Healthcare?" Dale's professional background made him an excellent addition to the panel, and his fellow panelists also contributed an impressive list of healthcare credentials with regard to both policy and administration.
As the title suggests, this panel was focused on the healthcare legacy of President Obama; otherwise known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Dale and the other panelists had in common a focus on returning healthcare freedom to individuals as the best remedy for our current, broken system - an approach with which Liberty HealthShare members can wholeheartedly agree.
Liberty HealthShare Executive Director Dale Bellis recently took the main stage at CPAC 2017 in Washington, DC, bringing a message about patient rights and freedom to a live audience of several thousand, and to countless online and television viewers.
Liberty HealthShare is always looking for opportunities to stay informed about national developments and movements that impact us as a sharing community. One of the ways we accomplish this is by strategically choosing and attending conferences that touch on healthcare, policy, and faith. These events offer us a chance to gather important information and pass it along to our members, to interact with and educate change-makers in various arenas, and to meet and hear from people just like you who are also in attendance.
