THE CONTINUING QUEST FOR HEALTH REFORM

 

Where are we today on reforming health care and what are we to do? Even after surviving Congressional assault, the Affordable Care Act is being undermined by the Trump Administration and alternatives such as single payer (“Medicare for All”) seem remote. Should we fight to save and improve what is good in the ACA? Should we work to replace the ACA with single payer or other alternatives? How do citizens organize to resist assaults on the provision of health care and how can they advance this basic human right?

Panelists:
TED BROWN, Professor of History and Public Health Sciences, U of R; Executive Committee, Finger Lakes Physicians for a National Health Program
BRUCE POPPER, Vice-President, 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East

This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be available
