Putting People Before Profits: The Healthcare Movie

December 10, 2012 - December 10, 2012
Portland, Oregon

The Healthcare Movie is a documentary describing Canada's fight for national health insurance and comparing the US and Canadian health care systems today. Join us for a screening of the film.

When: December 10th, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Where: The Clinton Street Theater (2522 SE Clinton Street in Portland)

Produced by Canadian/American couple Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg, this documentary reveals the public relations campaigns that have been prevalent in the United States since the early 1900's to dissuade the American public from supporting national health care.  It also shows the personal and emotional impact on Canadians who now have access to health care because of the heroism of people who took a stand to bring universal health care to Canada over 50 years ago.

The event is a fund raiser for Health Care for All-Oregon (HCAO) whose mission is  to create a comprehensive, equitable, publicly funded, high quality, universal health care system serving everyone in Oregon and the United States. 

There will be a discussion and Q and A after the film with members of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP).
