Our healthcare meeting on May 7, 2019 featured an interesting discussion of The Road to Universal Healthcare: ACA to Medicare for All. Many thanks to our speakers: Leslie Combs, District Director for Rep. Jan Schakowsky's office; John Perryman, MD of Physicians for a National Health Program; and Graciela Guzman, Coalition Director for Protect Our Care - IL. The room was packed and audience members asked many informed questions. Thank you to Indivisible Evanston's Healthcare Work Group for organizing the meeting.
The meeting was live-streamed on Facebook if you missed it.
And here’s the Daily Northwestern article about it: “Panelists discuss universal healthcare at Indivisible Evanston meeting”.
