Gainesville's Children's Medical Services office is hosting a legislative day on Friday to educate area officials on issues regarding children with special health care needs.

“This is an important opportunity for local elected officials to learn about and personally meet the children and families in their area who are served by the CMS network,” said Dr. Joseph J. Chiaro, deputy secretary of health for CMS, in a statement.

This is the first time CMS has hosted an event like this in Alachua County.

The legislative day, which will be held at the Gerold L. Schiebler Children's Medical Services Center at 1701 SW 16th Ave. from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., will include presentations about CMS, a clinic tour and a chance for parents of children with medical care needs to talk with legislators.
