Healthcare for ALL, Y’ALL (we’re already paying for it!)

November 14 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Do you have questions about how a universal healthcare system could work, right here in the US?

Please RSVP to learn more from these excellent speakers about financing, mythology, and the impacts for you, your job, and your family:

Joel Segal
As the senior legislative aide to Rep. John Conyers, he was one of the lead staffers on the Affordable Care Act and co-authored HR 676, also known as “Expanded and Improved Medicare For All,” which many health advocacy groups see as the Gold Standard for single payer legislation.

Dr. Michelle Cotton Laws, PhD, MA
As the Assistant Director of Program Development, Outreach, and Research at Community Health Coalition, Inc., which works to combat racial and income based health disparities, Dr. Laws will illuminate how political decisions and policies act as barriers to achieving health equity.

Dr. Aparna Jonnal, MD, MPH
As an emergency physician and primary care provider at a free clinic for the uninsured, she has a unique perspective on the high cost of the current healthcare “system” in terms of patient quality of life, care, and physician frustration.
