Health Justice: A Town Hall

Health Justice: A Town Hall

Talks/Lectures
Join us for a special Health Justice Town Hall with national health care expert and activist Timothy Faust and a panel of local community experts. Tim Faust is a writer for Jacobin magazine, the health care correspondent for Chapo Trap House, and co-host of "Heavy Medical," a podcast on health policy and heavy metal. He is pursuing a MPA in health policy and finance at NYU's School of Public Service. He's a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and an advocate for a national single payer system. Read some of his Jacobin writings here: https://www.jacobinmag.com/author/timothy-faust and check out his Twitter here: https://twitter.com/crulge Local healthcare experts are still being confirmed - check back for details. The event will cover the past, present, and future of US healthcare; the Medicare for All campaign and what a single-payer system could look like; and will address broader questions of social well-being. We'll begin with a structured talk from Faust and the other panelists and then provide time for an open Q & A. The Olympia and South Sound chapters of DSA are proud to cosponsor this event.
