At this time of pandemic crisis, availability and cost of health care is a top issue for all of us!
Come learn about Single Payer Health Care from Dr. Corinne Frugoni and Patty Harvey, long time advocates for Medicare for All/Single Payer Health Care and co-chairs of our local single payer advocacy group,Humboldt Healthcare for All/Physicians for a National Healthcare Program.  They will answer all questions and clarify exactly what this proposal will mean for all of us.  They also can give their perspectives on the various options being discussed by Biden right now.   This is an excellent personalized opportunity for us to learn, please join us. 
The presenters are both long-time advocates for Medicare For All, also known as Single Payer Health Care. They are the co-chairs of our local Single Payer advocacy group-Humboldt Healthcare For All/Physicians For A National Healthcare Program (HCA/PNHP) .
They will define Single Payer/Medicare For All, the benefits, why it is so important, how Covid-19 has exposed greater health disparities and inequities. They plan to leave time for Q&A followed at the very end with a review of an important petition that is being circulated to urge Governor Newsom to request waivers to free up Federal funds in order to develop and implement a Single Payer system for all residents in California.
