Chris Hanson, 2008 WAHU Fox Valley President

The dog days of summer are about to begin. We are headed to the time in summer where the heat and humidity is unrelenting and people in Wisconsin actually say things like, “Geez, I can’t wait for winter!”


As we sweat through the next two months, millions of Americans will still make poor health decisions. Do they understand their decisions impact everyone?


While many still chose a life of healthcare ignorance, others are choosing to get educated. On July 19th, the Appleton Post Crescent profiled an independent group of citizens known as “The Group” who hold their own town-hall style discussions with people running for local political office. Their venue is not fancy (it’s a garage), but the dialogue has potential candidates feeling the heat.


As “The Group” has proven during an important election year, each voice can be heard. As WAHU members, we must educate our politicians and consumers of healthcare. There is “no free lunch” in the world of healthcare and someone will have to pay for the plans proposed by both political parties. Let’s adopt “The Group” philosophy and make the most of our voice through a unified message and powerful grass-roots effort.


I look forward to seeing everyone at the WAHU Annual Sales Conference in Wisconsin Dells in September to celebrate our organization and the end of the dog days of summer!
