This Public Meeting takes place on the first Tuesday of every month at the Community Center located in Ridgway's Town Hall.
This month's program on Healthcare in America will follow the arc of healthcare from the "black art" that it was in the 1700s to the very scientific field that it is today. The program will also be looking at the various ways we are now trying to make sure more people can escape the black art and enjoy the scientific benefits of modern medicine. The presenter, Dr. Richard Gingery, is a past president of Health Care for All Colorado and a member of Physicians for a National Health Plan (PNHP). He has made presentations on health care reform in events from Denver to California. He has spoken from the steps of the Colorado state capitol building and he has testified before a joint session of the House-Senate committees in Denver examining the health care reform issue.
