Screening of Documentary on Health Care Planned at UE on February 25

Posted: Thursday, February 11, 2016

The documentary, Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Points, will be shown Thursday, February 25, at 7:00 p.m., in Room 162, Schroeder School of Business Building on the University of Evansville campus. The screening will be followed by an open discussion. The event, which is free and open to the public, is being co-sponsored by UE’s Department of Philosophy and Religion, UE College Democrats, Tri-State Jobs with Justice and the Southwest Indiana Chapter of Hoosiers for a Common Sense Health.

 

Despite the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the skyrocketing costs of health care to both individuals and businesses continue to rise at a significantly higher rate than the cost of living as well as growth in the GDP. That places a debilitating strain on the economy, not to mention the nation’s health. Can this level of increasing costs be sustained, while still moving toward universal coverage? What can be done about it? This documentary and open discussion will address these questions.
