Health Care Reform

Beginning, October 1, 2017 at 9 a.m. our current Healing the Heart of Democracy Group has selected Health Care Reform as the topic of our next group discussion with Bob Gettings as our lead.

Health Care Reform sessions will take place monthly – the 1st Sunday of each month from 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

A recently published book, entitled “An American Sickness” by Elizabeth Rosenfeld will be the principal text around which the discussion sessions will be organized.

Early sessions will focus on problems associated with various components of the nation’s existing health care system (e.g., hospital care; insurance; physicians and other health care practitioners; medical devices and supplies; etc.).

Later we’ll explore steps that we can take as individual consumers to improve our own interactions with the health care system; and, still later, we’ll discuss public policy changes aimed at improving the quality, accessibility and affordability of health care services for all Americans.

We also discussed the possibility of preparing a document summarizing the points of agreement within the group following each session, although this is a topic that will require further discussion before any final decisions are made. Participation in the new discussion group will be open to all members of the congregation. Individuals who participated in the HHD discussion group can choose to join the new discussion group or not.

Space is limited. Sign up in the Narthex at the LFD Counter.
