Medicare for All – Why a Single Payer System Makes Sense
June 7 at 7pm
Dr. Kutty to discuss the Single Payer initiative promoted by the Physicians for a National Health Program. The program will take place at the Library on June 7th at 7pm.
Physicians for a National Health Program believes that access to high-quality health care is a right of all people and should be provided as a public service rather than bought and sold as a commodity. Their mission is to educate the public about the need for a comprehensive, high-quality, publicly-funded health care program, equitably-accessible to all residents of the United States
Dr. Kutty will discuss the benefits of such a program as well as answer some of the myths that have evolved through the years. The presentation will focus on the situation in New Hampshire, as well as touch on the issues at the national level.
‘Dr Ahmed Kutty, a retired physician, has lived in Peterborough since 2013 and is an activist in healthcare financing in our country. As a member of the Granite State chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program, he is engaged in educating and increasing awareness of the unsustainability of the current system and the inherent inequity in access because of significant financial barriers.
