Consensus Questions: LWVOK Health Care Study
At the May 2019 meeting of the LWVOK Board of Trustees, options for the 2019-2021 study were presented. Although earlier planning had indicated that the corrections system would be the topic chosen, the Trustees chose health care for the focus of its 2019-2021 study. This choice was based on a straw poll of local Leagues. The LWVOK has no position on health care. It has positions on mental health and teenage pregnancy, but the LWVOK relies on the national (LWVUS) policies on health care for advocacy.

They have consolidated their research and are now asking league members to weigh in by answering the questions in this survey. Prior to answering the following consensus questions, please review the study matierals here:
