Attacks on the Veterans Health Administration and the Single-Payer Movement

FEATURED SPEAKER:

Suzanne Gordon, author of Wounds of War: How the VA Delivers Health, Healing, and Hope to the Nation’s Veterans (and other writings on veterans’ health), Assistant Adjunct Professor at the UCSF School of Nursing, and affiliated scholar with the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine’s Wilson Centre.

The nation’s only publicly-funded, fully-integrated national healthcare system is currently under attack from the Trump Administration, as well as Congressional Republicans and too many Democrats. This presentation will explain why the care delivered at the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is equal or superior to that in the private sector; the special needs of veteran patients; and the high stakes involved in the movement to save the VHA. It will also explore why single-payer advocates should join the fight to save the VHA.

All PNHP-NY Metro forums are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and WHEELCHAIR-ACCESSIBLE.
