The most important movie you'll ever see about health care in the US.
You've been sick...you bought the insurance...you've lost your doc...
Now Come See the Movie....
This 65-minute film documents the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point they were essentially the same.
Produced by Canadian/American couple Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg, The Healthcare Movie reveals the personal and emotional impact on Canadians who now have access to universal health care because of the heroism of people who took a stand nearly 50 years ago. It also reveals the continuing struggle in the United States between the fear of government intervention and the right to quality health care for all people.
Free showing Saturday, May 31, 4 p.m., at the Siuslaw Public Library in Florence. Representatives from Health Care for All-Oregon (HCAO) will be there to answer questions, along with Dr. John Egar, the primary care physician recently dismissed from Peace Health in Florence for speaking out about health care issues.
Sponsored by the Florence Chapter of HCAO. Listen to the film makers HERE.
