Health Care

SERIES I: FINAL EVENT

July 18, 2020 at 5:00pm PST

Is healthcare a right? The majority of the developed world says it is. The USA? No.

 

On July 18 at 5:00pm PST, PICplays presents four plays via Zoom that explore the right to quality healthcare.

 

From women's health and abortion rights, to job loss and a son's dire needs, to the ludicrously complicated American health care system, and ending with a play's exploration of one of the worst sterilization campaigns propagated by the U.S. and Puerto Rican governments in the mid-20th century.

GUEST SPEAKER

Robert Pollin, Ph.D

The evening will conclude with a lecture and Q&A by economist Dr. Robert Pollin, whose research validates the financial feasibility of a universal healthcare program.
