Turn on the TV, open a newspaper, browse social media: everyone is talking about new ideas for expanding American healthcare coverage.  As consumers and voters, it can be hard to know which option is best for our families, our neighbors, and our nation.

We've gathered some of the best minds in Michigan healthcare policy to lead this discussion:

KEYNOTE SPEAKER:

  • Marianne Udow-Phillips, Lecturer, University of Michigan School of Public Health & Ford Policy School and Director, Center for Health & Research Transformation

PANELISTS:

  • Eli Rubin, Topic: Michigan for Single Payer Healthcare

  • Charles Gaba, Healthcare Policy Analyst, Topic: Medicare for America

  • Jeremy Mahrle, Regional Manager, Office of Senator Debbie Stabenow, Topic: Medicare-at-50

Confronting Racism Within: The Intersectionality of Culture, Race and Gender
Dec

7:00 PM19:00

Confronting Racism Within: The Intersectionality of Culture, Race and Gender

Freda Sampson examines how the social attributes of race, culture and gender do not exist as single stand-alone issues. The political and personal realities and the construct of individuality are much more complex regarding privilege and oppression. We will deconstruct the complicated messages of identity to explore the nuances and impact of gender in the context of blackness and whiteness.

The session is free, although donations will be accepted at the door. All welcome! No need to RSVP.

For more information, call Rosemary at (248) 544-4504.
