Film Short & Forum: Guaranteed Healthcare for All
March 18, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
New York can lead the nation in passing Guaranteed Healthcare for All!
Join us for this impactful documentary film short, discussion and Q&A on the NY Health Act & the building momentum to pass single payer, universal healthcare here in NY.
The documentary film ‘Now Is The Time’ takes a critical look at our dysfunctional health care system, makes the case for transitioning to an equitable, universal, single payer system & honors the dedicated health advocates in the grassroots movement for guaranteed healthcare for all.
Discussion & Q&A with Martha Livingston, PH.D. Professor, Chair of the Public Health dept. at SUNY Old Westbury & Vice-Chair of Physicians for a National Health Program, NY Metro Chapter. She is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Public Health Policy, a member of the Steering Committee of the Labor Campaign for Single Payer Health Care and a serious New York Mets fan.
Dr. Livingston has researched and written on the Canadian health care system. She has advocated for national health care reform since 1992, and is an editor, with Mary E. O’Brien, M.D., of 10 Excellent Reasons for National Health Care, New York: The New Press, 2008.
