COVID Has Laid Bare: We All Live with Health Insecurity.
Find Out How We Change That in NM.
Tuesday, July 7, 6:30-8 pm, Health Security Act in NM, A Dream That Could Become Reality in 2021.
Tens of thousands of New Mexicans have lost jobs and with them their health coverage. Well before COVID, escalating costs for pharmaceuticals, premiums, co-pays, deductibles, and healthcare itself had put 80% of Americans one health crisis away from bankruptcy. And yet, well-researched solutions have been proven in dozens of countries not named the United States.That could change in January if we pass the Health Security Act. Let’s find out what it is, why we need it, and how we can make sure it passes in 2021.
Our July 7 Zoominar will include Dr. Mary Feldblum, Executive Director of Health Security for New Mexicans Campaign, an organization she formed in 1992. Joining her on the panel will be Tyler Taylor, a Los Alamos physician and member of the Campaign’s Executive Committee, and Shelley Mann-Lev, a Board Member for the NM Public Health Association and chair of its policy committee. The panel will outline what the HSA is, how it would benefit New Mexicans, how it would be implemented, governed and operate. Finally, the panel will describe the botched recent report produced by HGN Health Consulting that was supposed to describe how the HSA would benefit New Mexico.
