My office is hosting two Federal Employee Health Benefits Forums on Tuesday, November 12th (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and Thursday, November 21st (7 p.m. to 9 p.m.). Current or retired federal government employees who live in the 8th District are invited to attend one (or both!) of these forums, where you can speak with health insurance carrier representatives, ask questions, and hear from a panel of experts as they discuss federal health benefits options. 

Please save these dates and spread the word about these events. If you have any questions or are in need of special accommodations, such as a sign language interpreter, please contact my District Office staff at 301-354-1000. Take good care and hope to see you soon.
