State Sen. Irene Aguilar, D-Denver, will speak in Fort Collins on Oct. 1, the first stop on a statewide tour. Aguilar, who is also a physician, will talk about state and federal health care issues, as well as legislation she plans to introduce in the next legislative session.
The program, sponsored by Health Care for All Colorado, is set for 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Coloradoan Community Room, 1300 Riverside Ave. The public is welcome to attend.
As a past president of Health Care for All Colorado, Aguilar has been a strong proponent of universal health care for Colorado and the nation.
Aguilar was selected by her party to fill the State Senate seat vacated by Chris Romer last year when he ran unsuccessfully for mayor of Denver. She now represents Senate District 32.
