On Monday, March 16 at 6:30pm PT, Representative Derek Kilmer (WA-06) will hold a telephone town hall regarding the federal government’s response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition to a discussion on the recently passed $8.3 Billion emergency funding supplemental and legislation passed by the House to support workers and families, the telephone town hall will feature experts to help answer constituent questions regarding best practices and ongoing medical efforts to address the COVID-19 public health emergency, including:
- Dr. Alex Greninger, M.D., Ph.D., M.S., M.Phil., assistant director of the University of Washington Medicine Clinical Virology Laboratory and a University of Washington assistant professor of Laboratory Medicine.
- Dr. Nathan Schlicher, M.D., president-elect of the Washington State Medical Association and regional medical director of quality assurance for the emergency departments at CHI Franciscan.
“I work for the people I represent and it’s important to me that I get the opportunity to hear directly from you,” said Rep. Kilmer. “I hope folks will be able to join the town hall on Monday to learn more about COVID-19, my ongoing efforts to ensure the federal government steps up, and to get questions answered about the COVID-19 threat.”
Rep. Kilmer has held town halls so far in the 116th Congress in Port Angeles, Quilcene, Tacoma, Belfair, Poulsbo, Kingston, Gig Harbor, Montesano, Westport, Forks, over the phone, and on Facebook.
