Film: Now Is The Time: Healthcare for Everybody (71 min.) 2016

July 30 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Directed by Terry sterenberg & Laurie Simons
This is a documentary film about our current healthcare system, why it doesn’t work, and what you can do about it. The filmmakers interview doctors and nurses, patients, economists and politicians to see what they think about our current healthcare system. You’ll see what happens when advocates committed to changing the healthcare system take action. Big money for insurance companies. Fear of government taking over the nation’s healthcare system. But there’s something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together. This film intends to remove that fog, and will leave viewers examining what it means to be American and what it takes to step into action. This documentary film is a follow-up to the filmmakers first film, The Healthcare Movie (2011).
A Q&A and panel discussion follows the screening. Speakers include Jeff Gee, MD, from Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), Barb Ryan, RN, from California Nurses Association and a representative from the Healthy California Act (SB 562).
