On May 31, activists, clinicians, patients, caregivers, and friends from throughout the Baltimore/DC area came to hear Allison Galbraith's vision for universal care and her plan to defeat Trumpist Andy Harris.
Author and speaker T.R. Reid and Colorado State Senator Irene Aguilar, MD, joined us in Denver on April 11 for an event to benefit C4PC and the Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care. We benefited from their informed opinions about Colorado candidates who truly support universal care, and future steps advocates might take in the Centennial State and across the nation. Options discussed included multi-state consortiums, Medicare for All, Medicaid buy-in, and the potential of a Colorado insurance commissioner (like Dr. Aguilar?) who could advocate for patients, not profit. If you missed the event, you can still support C4PC here.
Please be in touch if you are running in office and want our endorsement.
You are invited to a special evening of drinks, appetizers, and inspiration in support of universal health care.
Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, will speak about the national activities of Clinicians for Progressive Care (C4PC) a political action committee promoting and endorsing progressive healthcare candidates. C4PC is hosting the fundraiser and will donate half of the funds raised to the Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care, a nonprofit working to bring universal health care to Colorado.
Colorado State Senator Irene Aguilar, MD, is just the kind of candidate that C4PC has supported elsewhere in the country. Sen. Aguilar has made a real difference in Colorado. Not only did she champion Colorado's Amendment 69, a ballot initiative for a state based universal health care system, she is respected on both sides of the aisle as a health policy expert.
T.R. Reid is a nationally known writer, speaker and filmmaker. He is the author of the bestselling The Healing of America as well as the PBS documentary "Sick Around the World,” and was one of the leading advocates for Colorado's Amendment 69. As a speaker and organizer, he has appeared before a number of groups of healthcare professionals and citizens working towards universal health care.
Please join us on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, from 7 to 8:30 pm, at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew, 1624 Market St., Denver CO 80023.
