FIX IT: Healthcare at the Tipping Point (Wed. 4 Oct, 2017 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Mentor Public Library, 8215 Mentor Ave, Mentor, James A. Garfield Room (lower level)

This is a powerful new documentary that reaches across the political and ideological divide to
expand support for major healthcare reform.
The film was two years in the making, with more than forty voices advocating for reform,
including: activists, health policy experts, economists, physicians, nurses, patients, business
and labor leaders.
This documentary takes an in-depth look into how our dysfunctional health care system
is damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians and negatively
impacting on the nation's health, while remaining un-affordable for our citizens.

Q&A period on Single Payer Health Care and discussion on how to move forward, following the movie.

Sponsored by Health Care For All Ohioans and SPAN Ohio
