  • WE will have a living wage for ALL workers

Medicare for All – The Road Forward

Join ORKC at this important event: Wendell Potter will explain the impact of the mid-term election results and where to go from here. Admission is free, tickers through Eventbrite, but donations to Unity Temple are welcomed at the door.

Potter first came to national attention when he testified in Congress about the damage caused by the misinformation campaigns he helped create as VP of Communication for Cigna – before he left Cigna and became an advocate for Medicare for All. Founder of the independent investigative journalism group Tarbell.org and author of Deadly Spin and Nation on the Take, Potter will share his insider’s perspective on the state of American healthcare and how we can improve and expand Medicare for us all.

This event is hosted by Physicians for a National Health Program-Missouri.

Time:

Tuesday, December 4, 2018
at 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM CDT
