Fit It: Healthcare at The Tipping Point is a powerful documentary that reaches across the political and ideological divide. 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 on the nation's health, while remaining un-affordable for a third of our citizens. 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.
After the screening we will have an incredible opportunity to hear from Dr. Martha Livingston, who will be leading an audience Q&A & speaking about the Campaign for NY Health and Physicians for a National Health Program's local efforts to bring universal healthcare to our state and how we can support that effort.
Martha Livingston, Ph.D., is Professor and Chair of the Public Health department at SUNY Old Westbury. She is Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of the New York Metro chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program, a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Public Health Policy, a member of the Steering Committee of the Labor Campaign for Single Payer Health Care, and a serious New York Mets fan.
Dr. Livingston has researched and written on the Canadian health care system. She has advocated for national health care reform since 1992, and is an editor, with Mary E. O’Brien, M.D., of 10 Excellent Reasons for National Health Care, New York: The New Press, 2008.
