Van Mitchell, the chair of the new Maryland Prescription Drug Affordability Board, will lead a forum at an Ellicott City senior center to hear about rising drug costs, the first of a series of events around the state to hear from the public about the burden of paying for their medications.

Howard County Executive Calvin Ball will help lead the forum, and he will be joined by Harford County Executive Barry Glassman and Maryland AARP official Tammy Bresnahan, according to a new release from the Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative.


“Too many people across Maryland simply can’t afford to pay for the medications they need to lead healthy lives, and it’s important for Chairman Mitchell to have the opportunity to hear directly from them,” Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative President Vincent DeMarco, who will also take part in the community forum, said in the release.
