Exercise your rights: Vote

Swope Health encourages you to vote in the Aug. 4 election — it is the best way to use your power and your voice to create change.

One example is Issue 2: Many members of our community lack access to affordable, quality healthcare.  If approved, Amendment 2 will expand Medicaid to provide access to health care for 230,000 Missourians, including many in our own community.
