Newport: Time to Speak Out on RxGreed!

Posted on 11/21/19


It’s unfair that Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world.

And it’s just wrong that many people are forced to choose between filling a prescription or buying groceries. Join AARP Rhode Island for a free conversation about the impact of prescription drug prices and what policy solutions are being proposed. We’ve invited Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Jamestown, Tiverton and Little Compton state lawmakers to attend.

It’s free of charge for everyone—members, nonmembers, and people of all ages
Please join us for the first in a series of community conversations around the state.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 5, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at La Forge Casino Restaurant, 186 Bellevue Ave., Newport, RI 02840. Free wine, beer and food will be provided to get things started. You must register for this event at or by calling 877-926-8300.

AARP members and non-members may attend. You may also register a guest.

We have invited Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Jamestown, Tiverton and Little Compton Senators and Representatives to listen to your concerns about drug costs and to join the conversation. Take on Today by registering for this forum.
