Sat Nov 16, registration 12:30 pm, meeting 1-4 pm, at Horizon House, 900 University St, Seattle; Health Care for All – Washington Annual Meeting. A panel will discuss overcoming the hurdles raised in the two Washington State Institute of Public Policy reports on “Single-Payer and Universal Health Care Systems,” and fill in some information that wasn’t presented in the reports. This is vital information for understanding the deliberations of the Universal Health Care Work Group. Panelists include: Ken Fabert, MD, who will contrast practicing medicine in the US and Australia and Health Care is a Human Right – Washington’s Co-Chair David Loud will update us on what we need to do to advocate for the State-Based Universal Health Care Act expected to be introduced by Rep. Ro Khanna (CA) this year. Other panelists will discuss the economic realities of health care expenses for Washingtonians, Aaron Katz from the UW Public Health will explain how other countries approach single-payer, a provider who has practiced in Canada and the US will speak to the experience of both systems, and Raleigh Watts, Executive Director of Country Doctor Community Health Clinics will present how Community Health Centers could play a key role in a Universal Health Care system.RSVP https://www.healthcareforallwa.org/annual_meeting_2019
