Healthcare: Is there a better way?
How do we get there?
Dr. Bill Honigman and Dr. Deborah Freund
Please join us to view the documentary Fix It – Healthcare at the Tipping Point and for discussion to follow. Fix It -Healthcare at the Tipping Point 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 a third of our citizens. This 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.
