Health Care for All Oregon is a grassroots coalition of over 100 organizations that are determined to create a better way of financing health care for every person who lives or works in Oregon.  Our mission is to provide publicly funded, privately delivered, high quality, affordable, universal health care to everyone. People will be free to choose their medical provider to give them the care that they need, free to choose their career, job, and time of retirement independent of health care costs.  We believe that health care is a human right.  The care we receive should not be dependent on what we can afford.  It is time we joined the rest of the free world and provided ourselves with publicly funded health care just like we do for education, libraries, fire fighters, and police.

The Jefferson Center presents The Healthcare Movie in Ashland

The Jefferson Center is pleased to present an informational program including a free showing of the documentary

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER  28, 2014

4:00-6:00 PM

PIONEER HALL, 73 WINBURN WAY, ASHLAND (Lithia Park)

Synopsis

We, in the United States, pay more for healthcare than comparably developed nations and yet often have worse health outcomes.  Other countries have very different systems of paying for health care.  We have options for change.

After the Movie

The film will be followed by an opportunity to explore questions about the challenges of our present healthcare system and what an expanded Medicare for all might be like. This discussion will be led by a panel from HCAO (Healthcare for All Oregon) including Wes Brain of Ashland, Mike Huntington M.D. and Tim Roach from Corvallis, and Lee Mercer from Silverton.

The Community Action Committee of The Jefferson Center, Ashland OR.
