McCain and Martinez to hold health care forum



Sen. Mel Martinez will hold a health care forum tomorrow in Hialeah with Sen. John McCain and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

“This is going to be a frank discussion with health care providers, patients, and other stakeholders to air concerns about the current system and what steps Congress should take to address the problems," the retiring Martinez said in a statement.

The event will be held at Palmetto General Hospital, 2001 W. 68th St., and begins at 3:30 p.m. McCain and McConnell have been touring the states on the issue.
