Movie and discussion
We co-sponsored a showing of the short movie “Now is the Time” about Medicare for All, followed by discussion on the topic of Medicare for All at the Dunbar Free Library on Friday Jan 26. The title was “A Changing Health Insurance Landscape: Improved Medicare for All” with Dr Ken Dolkart, a Geriatrician and primary care physician who belongs to Granite-State Physicians for a National Health Program. He is an active member of our group! This was a presentation on the topic of incorporating our myriad of inefficient tax-funded programs and increasingly costly for-profit health insurance entities into a consolidated program modeled on Medicare.
