Now is the Time; Health Care for Everybody
May 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
7pm Film Screening
Guest Speaker: Dr. Margraet Flowers
Admission is free
We’ve seen enough to know that insurance-based healthcare is not effective for keeping costs down and giving everyone access to needed medical care. Advocates are totally committed to changing the healthcare system, and polls indicate that the general public supports the idea of universal healthcare. So it should be a no-brainer, right? Well, no. Some of the obstacles are obvious. Big money. Fear of government. But there seems to be something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together. What is so difficult about the idea of looking after each other? This film intends to expose the fog, and will leave viewers examining what it means to be an American and what it takes to step into action.
Featured in the film, Dr. Flowers, a pediatrician, left practice in 2007 to work full-time for improved Medicare for all. She served on the staff of Physicians for a National Health Program, is on the board of Healthcare-Now and Health Over Profit.
