Meeting Room A -

 2345 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH - 

The main item of business will be a report & discussion of single-payer universal health care vs. the public option and other plans currently being discussed  in Congress. In addition, we will discuss participating in the national lobby and rally day for Single Payer/Medicare for All on Medicare's 44th birthday, Thursday July 30.  We will be talking about organizing transportation to Washington, as well as possible local events here in Cleveland on that date. If you are interested in helping organize or attending the July 30 events, please give me a call or reply by e-mail. For more information on the national event, check out this web-site:                 http://www.healthcare-now.org/campaigns/single-payer-rally/ (Also, at the meeting, there will be a vote on a by-laws proposal (see attachment) for member-at-large position on the executive committee, and if it passes, elect two people to the position.)

Summit County SPAN Monthly Meeting (Tue. 21 Jul, 2009 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm)

The SPAN Chapter of Summit County needs you to make the Health Care for All Ohioans Act a reality.

Sat. 25 Jul, 2009

Weekend of Free Health Care (Sat. 25 Jul, 2009 4:00 am - 5:30 am)

Called MedWorks, this event allows patients who have made an appointment to see volunteer doctors for free from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26, 2009 at the W.O. Walker Center, 10524 Euclid Ave, Cleveland. SPAN Ohio supporters plan to gather at 8 a.m. on Saturday the 25th to call attention to the fact that, laudable as it is, MedWorks would not be necessary if America had a single-payer health care system that provided health care for all. If you would like to participate, just show up at 8 a.m. and bring a sign that indicates why you are there. Example:"Medicare for all - Not Medworks for a few - Pass HR676!" (or, "Pass the Health Care for All Ohioans Act!").  If you have a SPAN T-shirt, please wear it.
PARKING: There is no good parking for us.  There may not be any street parking in the immediate vicinity.  You may or may not be able to use the lot that registered patients for this Medworks clinic are using on 105th.   There is a parking garage across E 107th on the other side of the W.O. Walker Center, or a Cleveland Clinic parking garage at E. 100 and Carnegie.  (of course you have to pay to park there).  There may be some free parking, you could call me about that.
