Bennet to tour Grand Junction clinic
GRAND JUNCTION, Colorado ” Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet is scheduled to tour a community clinic in Grand Junction on Friday, as part of an ongoing discussion about health care issues in the state.
The Marillac Clinic provides health care services to uninsured Mesa County residents with low and moderate incomes. The Democratic senator is planning to tour the facility at 2 p.m.
Following the tour, Bennet will hold a round-table discussion with area leaders. He also plans to unveil legislation designed to cut health care costs through a program in which seniors receive additional follow-up care after being released from the hospital.
