Norman Williams Library program comparing on healthcare: Canada vs. U.S.

Wednesday, May 10, 4:30 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Norman Williams Public Library will hosts a presentation, Improved Medicare for All, Wednesday, May 10, 4:30 p.m. It will begin with “The Healthcare Movie” at 4:30 p.m. followed by a presentation/Q&A session with Dr. Marvin Malek, M.D. “The Healthcare Movie” is a documentary which provides the story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so different, when at one point the systems were essentially the same. Every day, people are dying or going bankrupt due to the ills of the U.S. system.

Those that agree that people are more important than profits should watch this film.

Dr. Malek has spent most of his career in community medicine, providing care to underserved populations. He is the recipient of a Kellogg Foundation grant which he used to pursue advanced training in the field of health policy at Harvard School of Public Health. He currently practices internal medicine at Central Vermont Hospital, where he provides medical consultation and intensive care to hospitalized patients.
