State Rep. Bennie Cook, R-Houston, has been invited to join the Missouri Foundation for Health’s Legislative Learning Cohort, which provides educational opportunities for lawmakers to learn more about a variety of topics to better serve their constituents and Missouri.

According to Cook, the cohort will discuss trending policy topics such as: public health infrastructure, value-based care, telehealth, drug pricing, drug costs and behavioral health. 

Over the next five months, the cohort will meet to gather more information on a variety of health issues.

Experts from across the state and nation will lead the presentations and discussions on each issue, with the first session covering the fundamentals of the U.S. healthcare system, including an overview of insurance, payment, delivery systems and quality of care. 

“I appreciate the invitation to join this group to learn more about health policy for our state and our nation,” Cook said. “I look forward to continuing to grow as a legislator so that I may serve the people of my district to fullest of my abilities."
