Organizing for Single-Payer Health Care in the Philadelphia Region
Health Care for All Philadelphia is a coalition of health professionals and activists dedicated to achieving a publicly financed, single payer health plan that provides one standard of cost-effective, high quality care for all people.
Because of the snow, we have decided to cancel the face to face meeting tonight. There will be instead a conference call. Those interested should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Walter
On November 21st, Healthcare For All Philadelphia and Healthcare 4 All PA will be hosting Gerald Friedman, Ph.D. Professor of Economics, Univ. of Massachusetts-Amherst, to discuss single-payer healthcare in PA. Earlier this year, Friedman released an Economic Impact Study (EIS), “The Pennsylvania Healthcare Plan: Impact and Implementation”, which discussed a single-payer plan for Pennsylvania as outlined by Senator Jim Ferlo’s PA Senate Bill 400. It is essentially a statewide and improved Medicare for all system in Pennsylvania.
This event is FREE and open to the public. It will be held at William Way Community Center, 1315 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, PA from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. This single-payer system will create 100,000+ jobs and provide universal coverage for all citizens of the Pennsylvania – all while saving the Commonwealth $17 billion annually. The presentation will be followed with a Q&A session with the audience.
