California RNs Kick off Healthcare Tour in San Diego 6/19, with Screenings and Town Hall

 
Local stats show great need for healthcare overhaul—22% of adults uninsured, 13% of adults unable to see a doctor due to cost

With the U.S. Supreme Court decision expected imminently on the fate of the 2010 healthcare law, nurses, physicians, and healthcare activists will begin a three-week tour of California cities Tuesday as a reminder that the healthcare crisis continues to worsen and genuine, comprehensive reform is still needed.

Beginning in San Diego on June 19 and ending on July 12 in Anaheim, the Medicare for All tour will crisscross the state with stops in nearly two dozen sites. It will feature basic health screenings and town hall meetings where community members will be invited to tell their healthcare stories.

The tour kicks off in San Diego on Tuesday June 19 and will run through July 12 in Anaheim.  The Medicare for All tour will crisscross the state with stops in nearly two dozen sites.

Please sir, millions of us, myself and my small, Virginia employer among them, need a real alternative in the flawed health insurance market. May your voice sound loud and proud for the real reform on the table today.
