Free screening of The Healthcare Movie

Poster for HCM Event Jacobs Center

This 65 minute documentary tells the real story of how the health care system in Canada turned out to be so completely different from that in the United States, when in the 1950’s they were essentially the same. While Canadians experience the benefits and peace of mind of Canada’s universal health care system, the forces against change in the U.S. are now much stronger and have much more at stake financially. Is there hope for the United States? for more information:
