The hearing will be at 9 a.m. Jan. 15 at the Los Griegos Community Center, 1231 Candelaria NW.

So far, the department has received petitions to add medical conditions such as Crohn's Disease, chronic pain, post-traumatic-stress disorder, hepatitis C, bipolar disorder, arthritis, asthma and anorexia.

Right now, conditions are limited to cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, damage to nervous tissue of the spinal cord with intractable spasticity, epilepsy and HIV/AIDS.

After the meeting, the board will make recommendations to the Health Secretary, who will make final decisions.
