Purpose

Three generations ago it was acceptable that women couldn't vote.
Two generations ago it was acceptable that people were divided on a bus by the color of their skin.

Today in the U.S. it is acceptable that the lack of insurance leads to 45,000 unnecessary deaths each year and that 60% of all bankruptcies that filed are due to the inability to pay outrageous medical bills.

Today, the U.S. is the only industrialized nation that does not have a Universal Healthcare System.

Bring your questions to this teach-in or just listen to Dr. Paul Gorman and guests discuss Healthcare in the U.S and in other nations.
