Meet Courtney—and Our New Small Business Workshop Series!

Editor’s Note: The Texas Well and Healthy Campaign is proud to introduce you to the newest member of our team – Courtney Watson! Courtney is an organizer with over 12 years experience and has worked with non-profits on community campaigns with a special focus on healthcare.  Her goal for Texas Well and Healthy is to educate people about the Affordable Care Act and how it will impact small businesses in Texas.

As many of you know, small businesses account for the majority of the employers within the state of Texas and are a driving force behind our economy.  In fact, there are more than 2.2 million small businesses in Texas, and small firms make up more than 98% of the state’s employers.

If you are connected with business groups or small business owners who want more details on how the ACA will affect small businesses in Texas and choices they have for better healthcare in Texas, let me know! You can email me at [email protected], or feel free to call at (512) 788-1301. 

The majority of Texans work in small business or know someone who does.  We must spread the word on how the ACA is creating affordable, quality healthcare for everyone!
