U.S. Senate Candidate Steve Woods Offers Free Health Screenings to Mainers
Press Event :
Wednesday, June 27th,
11:00 am, at Steve Woods for US Senate Headquarters
Woods to Unveil Screenings program and discuss Supreme Court Decision.
This past March the U.S. Supreme Court held its longest oral arguments in 45 years. At issue: The future of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), frequently referred to as Obamacare. It is expected that the United States Supreme Court will issues their historic ruling in the next few days (hours?) and Mainers should be thinking about this critical issue in regard to who is elected as the next U.S. Senator from Maine.
U.S. Senate Candidate Steve Woods said, "the Supreme Court decision will not mark the end of the healthcare reform process, but instead the beginning of a critical phase that the new U.S. Senator from Maine will play an important role in defining.” The healthcare ruling promises to be one of the court’s most significant decisions in decades, determining the fate of Obama’s signature domestic achievement. The law would extend insurance to at least 30 million people and overhaul an industry that makes up close to 20% of our economy. The impact of this ruling, regardless of the Supreme Court decision(s) will be monumental – for the United States – and for everyone in Maine.
U.S. Senate Candidate Steve Woods supports the ACA and believes that healthcare reform should be one of our country’s highest priorities. As the owner and CEO of one of the leading health/wellness companies in the country, Promerica Health (www.PromericaHealth.com), Woods may be the most experienced and knowledgeable senate candidate when Mainers consider issues relating to preventative healthcare outreach and patient engagement. “I am proud of the work that we do at Promerica Health,” said Woods, “over the last few years we have engaged with patients from coast to coast and executed hundreds of thousands of health screenings.”
“I am particularly concerned for our citizens in Maine in regard to the Supreme Court decision where we have the oldest population in the country with many people directly impacted by current economic conditions and their own serious health issues. Mainers deserve a strong voice in D.C on this issue – and the November 6th election will select that voice,” added Woods.
Woods is the only U.S. Senate Candidate that;
-Owns multiple small businesses and provides extensive health benefits to his employees and knows personally the burden that healthcare costs mean to businesses and employees in Maine. Over the last few years Woods has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in healthcare expenses and he understands the needs of employers and employees.
-Has a daughter (21-years-old) that is qualified for healthcare coverage under his plan thanks to ACA – and otherwise would face the reality of no healthcare coverage because of the exorbitant cost – or another tremendous expense burden for a young person starting out in life.
-Is the owner/CEO of a health/wellness company based in Maine – Promerica Health – a nationally recognized best-in-class service provider.
As the owner and CEO of Promerica Health, Steve Woods will be driving one of the Promerica Health Screening vehicles around the state of Maine in early July giving free health screenings to Maine residents. Promerica Health will be announcing events in; Saco, Portland, Augusta, Bangor and other locations.
THE MEDIA IS INVITED TO ATTEND A MEDIA EVENT ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27TH, 11:00AM, AT STEVE WOODS CAMPAIGN HEADQUARTERS, 380 US RT1, FALMOUTH, ME, TO HEAR DETAILS IN REGARDS THE “HEALTH ACROSS MAINE” TOUR, TALK TO CANDIDATE WOODS ABOUT HIS VIEWS ON THE SUPREME COURT DECISION, AND TOUR THE HEALTH SCREENING VEHICLE THAT WILL BE VISITING MAINERS ACROSS THE STATE.
