Congressman comes to county
Congressman Travis Childers visited rural health care centers throughout Mississippi’s First Congressional District last week as part of National Health Care Week.
The Congressman’s visits included tours of facilities in Marshall, Benton, Itawamba and Monroe counties.
“North Mississippians need and deserve quality, affordable, and accessible health care,” said Congressman Childers. “My wife and I have owned and run a nursing center and a personal care home, and we understand how important medical care is to our constituents.
“I’m honored to have met with the staff and administrators at rural health care centers throughout the First District and am proud of the fine work they do to serve their patients. I will continue to do everything I can to provide the people of North Mississippi with the health services they need.”
Childers’ visits included Williams Medical Clinic in Holly Springs, the Mantachie Rural Health Care Clinic, Smithville Access Family Health Services, and North Benton County Health Care in Ashland.
• Travis Childers visits Northeast Mississippi Health Care
Congressman Travis Childers visited with veterans in Marshall and Lafayette Counties Thursday. He met with Veterans Affairs representatives at Northeast Mississippi Health Care Clinic in Byhalia and held a County Veterans Service Officers (CVSO) roundtable in Oxford to discuss issues important to North Mississippi veterans.
“The fine men and women who have served to protect the freedoms upon which this country was founded deserve the best care possible,” said Congressman Childers.
“I am proud to have met with North Mississippi veterans, and am committed to providing our armed services retirees and active duty members with the services they need.”
During the CVSO roundtable, Congressman Childers spoke with veterans about legislative efforts concerning the military, and also answered questions about issues of importance to North Mississippi armed services retirees, including medical benefits and the G.I. Bill.
