Who We Are

Single-Payer Action Network Ohio (SPAN Ohio) is a coalition of individuals and organizations in working together to achieve fundamental reform of the health insurance system, first in our state and eventually at the national level, so that every resident is guaranteed full and comprehensive coverage from birth to death. SPAN Ohio is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(4) organization. Contributions to SPAN are not tax deductible.

To join the coalition, please complete the sign-up form, which will add your name to our mailing list and allow us to keep you informed of our progress. Since we are not a membership organization, there is no cost to join. However, voluntary contributions in any amount to help cover the cost of printing and other expenses are greatly appreciated.

Showing of "The Healthcare Movie" (Sun. 3 Aug, 2014 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

SPAN Ohio, region 7, is proud to host a screening of “The Heathcare Movie” on the 49th anniversary of our own Medicare system. The movie will be screened at The Neon Theater in Dayton Ohio at 130 East Fifth Street and there will be a gathering for cake and socialization afterward at Blind Bob's Tavern just down the street at 430 East Fifth Street.

“The Healthcare Movie” is a 65 minute documentary that reveals the intensity of the political struggle that led to Canada's universal medical care system, and exposes public relations campaigns that have been prevalent in the U.S. since the early 1900's to dissuade the American public from supporting national health care. Every day people are dying or going bankrupt due to the ills of the United States system. Who are we in the face of this human tragedy? If you agree that people are more important than profits, then you must see this film. Admission is free and open to the public.
