WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A documentary film and an expert panel discussion on the crisis in health care delivery and ways to fix it will be shown during a public forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Westchester on Sunday, April 3, at the White Plains Public Library.
After the 38-minute film, “FIX IT: Healthcare at the Tipping Point,” a panel discussion will be led by Assemblywoman Amy Paulin and Dr. Elizabeth Rosenthal from Physicians for a National Health Program.
The state Assembly has passed a bill for a single-payer health care in New York, and advocates are now focusing on state Senate passage.
"Medicare-for-all, single-payer health care is now receiving unprecedented national attention. At last! Come and learn what is possible for New Yorkers,” said Madeline Zevon, forum chair and Health Care chair for the League of Women Voters of Westchester.
The film looks at health care from a businessman’s perspective and shows how the inefficiencies of the present system are damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians, and negatively impacting the nation’s health while remaining unaffordable for a third of the population.
The event begins at 1:30 p.m. at the library, 100 Martine Ave. For further information, call 914-761-4382.
