You have finished your visit and have talked to your MP about protecting and enhancing Medicare. You don't want you and your fellow advocates, nor the issue you have discussed, to be forgotten. This is a kit of information to leave behind for your MP, who, hopefully, will refer to it often after your visit.
It reminds your MP of who you are, the reason for your visit, and some background educational information about the threats to Medicare.
