Session 1: Saturday, June 2nd: 10:00 - 11:50am
Description/Abstract of your Event:
These days, our health and well-being are sorted through a profit-seeking financial complex that monitors and commodifies our lives. Our access to competent, affordable health care grows more precarious every day. Howard Waitzkin, along with the medical professionals, scholars, and activists who comprise the Working Group on Health Beyond Capitalism, will discuss just what's wrong with our medical system, how it got this way, and how their new book, "Health Care Under the Knife," contributes to a winning strategy for the left in moving toward a post-capitalist health-care system.
