|April Meeting: Nancy Worley and the Politics of Health|
“Health Care: A Privilege or a Right?”?a talk by Nancy Worley and an Open Discussion
4 PM Sunday April 19th, at Gage Hall, 4 Archdale Street
At our April meeting, SHL Volunteer Coordinator Nancy Worley will discuss the findings of her recent investigation into the issues surrounding universal health care, followed by a moderated group discussion on the same topic.
Nancy is active with the Health Care Committee of a community group called Grassroots Call to Action. Her committee recently researched the present state of health care in terms of cost, access, and quality, and the ways in which universal health coverage would improve the present situation.
After she presents the facts and introduces some of the difficult ethical questions that arise, we will change gears and have an open forum at which SHL members and others in attendance can discuss and debate the issues.
As usual, the meeting will be held at 4PM on the third Sunday of the month at Gage Hall next to the Unitarian Church on Archdale Street. The meeting is free and open to the public and will feature light refreshments.
Nancy Worley is a retired Associate Professor of Nursing at MUSC. She has a BS and Master's degree in Nursing and a Ph.D in City and Regional Planning with a concentration in Health Planning- all from the University of Pennsylvania. She is the author of several dozen journal articles and book chapters. She has written a book on Mental Health in the Community and has been an invited speaker at national and international conferences on mental health.
