The Children's Defense Fund, Family Circle of Care and the East Texas Human Needs Network co-hosted a public forum on Medicaid on Saturday. 

The forum was organized in response to efforts at the federal level that could cut Medicaid funding and reduce the number of people in Texas on Medicaid. 

The event highlighted the needs of those who rely on Medicaid in Tyler and other East Texas communities  and featured several community members who shared personal stories about how having Medicaid coverage impacted their lives.
