Heritage Health is hosting state Rep. David R. Leitch, R-Peoria, for a discussion on proposed cuts to nursing home care.

From 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, residents are invited to listen to updates and offer their comments on Medicaid cuts, payment delays and new regulations.

The Health Care Council of Illinois is traveling around Illinois, making 17 stops to raise awareness about devastating cuts proposed for nursing home care. Proposed cuts will disenfranchise nursing home residents and their communities that rely on nursing home services.

The event will be at the nursing home, located at 1028 Hillcrest Drive.
