Dr. Jeanne Corwin will discuss the state of healthcare in the US including the number of uninsured, the number of underinsured, the number of deaths due to lack of insurance, how much we pay per person for healthcare in the US, why we pay so much, and our health care outcomes. She will outline the benefits of a universal single payer health care system and federal bills for improved Medicare for all.
Dee Chavez, RN, will introduce SPAN Ohio, its goals and how its members are trying to accomplish them. She will review the Health Value Dashboard put out in April 2019 by the Health Policy Institute of Ohio, which is a detailed summary of the state of health care in Ohio. Dee will also review the Economic Study commissioned by SPAN Ohio in 2019 and done by Dr. Thomas Friedman, an economist at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The study shows how Ohio would save money and be able to provide universal guaranteed health care coverage for Ohioans.
