Other guests in the Speaker's box include:

Ms. Rosalyn Frazier of Miramar, Florida - Broward Community & Family Health Centers

[In April 2009, Ms. Frazier hosted Speaker Pelosi and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz at the Hollywood location of the Broward Community & Family Health Centers (BCFHC) to announce that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act would allow BCFHC to open a new clinic in West Park, creating 13 new jobs. Because of the downturn in the economy and reduced funding, BCHFC was going to have to reduce services and eliminate two jobs even though the number of people needing their services was increasing. Now nearly five months later, BCFHC has just opened its new West Park location, helping to fill the gap in that community for accessible and affordable health care.]
