The Washington County Chapter of HCAO is showing The Healthcare Movie on Friday, June 20 at Cascadia Commons, 4377 SW 94th Ave, Portland, at 7 p.m. in the Common House (opens at 6:30). There will be a sign and/or balloons to direct you. The screening will be followed by a talk and Q&A by David Young, RN.
This 65-minute documentary, produced by Canadian/American couple Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg, provides the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point they were essentially the same. It also reveals the continuing struggle in the United States between the fear of government intervention and the right to quality health care for all people.
The lack of a national health care system is one of the greatest
financial burdens America faces.
Kiefer Sutherland, Narrator
