More lawmakers are focusing on southeast Iowa this month as a top aide to U.S. Senator Tom Harkin will be visiting Washington County to discuss healthcare. Harkin says there needs to be a greater effort made at preventing illness, rather than treating it after it occurs. Harkin is the chair of Health Education Labor and Prevention, or HELP, and his staff has been traveling across Iowa to give communities better access to constituent services. Harkins aide will be in Washington June 25 at Washington County Hospital and Clinics at 8:30 am.
