Our members work from the inside-out to bring health care access to those in the most dire need.
Formed in response to a two-year campaign of listening to TBA members, this committee focuses on local, state, and national initiatives and laws to bring about universal health care. If you are interested in joining us or adding your name to our action alert e-list, contact Linda Harris, Debbie Schuster, or Connie Rock.
The Healthcare Movie
Thursday, April 6, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
The TBA Health Care for All Committee invites you to a screening of The Healthcare Movie, a documentary by Terry Sterrenberg and Laurie Simons (running time is 70 minutes), followed by a discussion. This engaging and powerful documentary shows the history and political struggles behind the evolution of how health care is paid for in the U.S. and Canada. The film also covers the current Canadian system. (Spoiler: Canadians think we’re nuts in the U.S. Even their doctors like their system.) The history behind our two vastly disparate healthcare systems is fascinating – and crucial to understanding the key obstacles facing the movement for a single-payer system in the U.S.
This documentary is essential viewing if you are on the fence about whether healthcare should be considered a human right. Even if you’re already convinced, knowing the history will help change the future. Plan for a lively discussion after the movie screening. And, if you’re worried about how we can afford this, we’re planning a second documentary screening that will focus on the economics of a single payer system.
