State representative Sonya Williams Barnes served as the keynote speaker for the event, discussing what may happen if changes are made to the Affordable Care Act.
“I am by far not a healthcare professional, nor do I claim to be one. In fact, I own a funeral home,” said Williams-Barnes. “I’m sad to say that if [healthcare is changed], I may begin to get more business than I can handle. Our system has continued to turn toward death care as it has turned away from healthcare.”
