Announcing 'Watch This Wednesdays,' Our New Video Series

Texas Well and Healthy is setting out to bring you a new series of videos, featuring real Texans' health care stories and quick lessons about the Affordable Care Act. Mid-week every week for the next eight weeks, we're going to be sharing at least one thing we really think you ought to see to get you motivated for action and informed about health care. And while we're on the subject of what you're viewing, read on for news about an action opportunity after tonight's presidential debate.

To kick off Watch This Wednesday, we are bringing you two new videos this week. First up, is A Texas Health Care Story, the real-life account of a young, uninsured mother whose heart condition means good health care can make an enormous difference.

Also, don't Ask Cheasty - catch her on YouTube instead.

Our intrepid community educator, who has been answering your questions about health care on our Texas Treatment blog, will soon be off on maternity leave. She didn't want to leave you stranded, though, so check out No More Lifetime Benefit Caps, the first in our series of informative "video one-pagers" from Cheasty.

Finally, do you want the presidential campaigns to focus more on the issues that matter to children and families?

Well, we do, too, so we are partnering with the First Focus Campaign for Children and for DebateWatch 2012, a conversation on Twitter about what the candidates have to say.

Watch tonight's presidential debate and the debates on Oct. 11th and 16th from 8:00-9:30pm. (Next Thursday and the following Tuesday--seems the Presidential Commission on Debates didn't get our memo about Wednesdays.) Right after the debates, join us (@TXWellHealthy) and other Americans all over the country to talk about what the candidates had to say, searching for and using the hashtag #Kids2012. Get general Twitter tips here, and remember to include #Kids2012 in your tweets tonight, so everyone gets your message!

Stay tuned to our campaign YouTube channel and this Texas Treatment blog for future videos and reminders to watch Wednesdays (and that special Thursday and Tuesday, too).
