SAVE THE DATES, Volunteer, and Join the Medicare for All Tour 2012
Join CNA and the Campaign for a Healthy California on the Healthcare Express Bus Tour 2012! The program consists of two parts – health screenings and town halls — and the tour’s purpose is to broaden and diversify public support and deepen RN support for Medicare for All.
We also want to collect stories of healthcare denials, medical bankruptcies, and financial hardship to press the case for why we need guaranteed healthcare via improved Medicare for Al l— the only real solution to the healthcare crisis. By reaching out to seniors and communities touched by unemployment, foreclosure, shrinking health coverage and even more scarce treatment options, we hope to both serve and educate.
At each stop, we’ll do outreach in the community in the afternoon (via media and leafleting) and set-up. The clinic begins at 3:00pm, followed immediately by a town hall from 6:30 – 8:00pm at the same site. Exact locations will be announced as soon as we have them.
If you would like to volunteer some time to conduct basic screenings, meet your neighbors and help NNU build the national case for universal coverage, please sign up here and we’ll contact you with more information!
