Coffee & Controversy: The Intersection of Transit & Health

What You Need to Know This November

This November, voters will go to the polls in metro Detroit to vote for or against an integrated regional transit system that will cost $2.9 billion over the next 20 years.

So GDAHC wants to know: what's in it for health care? How will a yes or no vote impact access to health care? Will this vote influence current and future jobs in the health care industry? How does mass transit effect our wallets and waistlines?

Join GDAHC as we take our Coffee & Controversy series to Macomb County to debate one of the most heated regional issues on the ballot and what it means to our collective health. Our interactive panel includes the following community leaders:
Eric Barnaby, Vice President of Strategy, St. John Providence
Melissa Roy, Executive Director, Advancing Macomb
Sonya Mays, President & CEO, Develop Detroit; RTA Board Member, Wayne County Representative

Tickets may be purchased online.
