Residents in the South Carolina Lowcountry have a chance to air their thoughts on the volatile issue of health care reform.

U.S. Rep. Henry Brown, the Republican representing the state's 1st District, has scheduled a health care forum Thursday evening in an exhibit hall of the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston.

Some health care town hall meetings around the nation have degenerated into shouting matches between the opponents and supporters of government health care reform.
