Please join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend for our free screening of "Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Point" on February 12 at 6:30 PM in the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Sanctuary, 2333 San Juan Avenue in Port Townsend.
"Fix It" takes an in-depth look into how our dysfunctional health care system is damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians, and negatively impacting the nation's health, all while remaining unaffordable for a third of our citizens.
The average American family of four incurs an annual healthcare insurance tab of $23,000. In many cases, this astronomical sum doesn't afford them nearly enough coverage for emergency medical care.
Whether you're a senior citizen, a young and vital member of the workforce, or a business owner desperate to provide the most basic benefits to your employees, you are not immune from the damages inflicted by these rising costs. The film presents impassioned viewpoints from each of these segments of the population in the United States.
The film was two years in the making, with more than forty voices advocating for reform, including: activists, health policy experts, economists, physicians, nurses, patients, business and labor leaders.
