Healthcare & Public Option: Cuba and the US Health debate

The film, Salud, is excellent.  It is about the role of humanity over
profits in healthcare. Socialism or Nothing!--Joan

Healthcare & Public Option: Cuba and the US Health debate
Movie and Panel Discussion

Movie: "Salud", follows the work of Cuban doctors who volunteer in a
number of Latin American and African countries. The film is a tribute to
Cuba's longstanding policy of sending doctors to buttress healthcare in
poorer countries, more than any other country in the world.

Movie to be followed by:
Panel discussion on the Healthcare debate in the US Congress and the
relevance of the Cuban Universal Healthcare system to the struggle for
universal healthcare in the United States. Panelists include:

 Dr. Elizabeth Frost (Co-chair, Physicians for National Health Program,
Minnesota)
 Joel Albers (Healthcare Economics Researcher, UHCAN)
 John Schwarz (Director, United Health System -- a non-profit advocacy
for Universal Healthcare)
 August Nimtz (Prof. of History, U of MN and member, MN Cuba Committee)

Dec. 3 2009 Thursday, 6-9pm.
Where: Carlson School of Management, Rm. 1-147,
West Bank Campus, U of MN (Address: 321 19th Ave. S, Mpls)

Q&A with audience will follow afterwards. Please come and find out the
reasons behind the success of the Cuban Health system and why the US
Congress refuses to follow suit, despite the US being a far richer and
powerful country. No admission Fee. Refreshments will be provided. All
are welcome.

Subject: HennCo budget 12.03 time??

The 2nd & final public hearing on the Mpls. City budget is 12/7.  The
City council will vote on the budget at that meeting. I think we should
all go to the hearing, fill the room so people are standing in the halls.
That way the City C. & mayor will know people are unhappy about the
spending increase.

Monday, Dec. 7, 6:05 p.m.
City Hall, City Council chamber room 317
350 South 5th Street, room 317

Also the hearing for Hennepin County is
Thursday Dec. 3
A2400 Commissioner Board Room
Hennepin County Government Center
