Community Healthcare Forum: Stoddard

August 21, 2019

6:30pm - 8:00pm

Stoddard American Legion, 414 Broadway St, Stoddard WI

The third in our series of summer/fall community forums on universal health care. Titled “Our Dysfunctional Healthcare System: Which Way Forward?”, the forum will feature a panel of two medical professionals: Dr. Mark Neumann and Emma Hood, RN.
This forum is free and open to the public.
The goal of this forum series is for the citizens of Vernon County to have open, non-partisan conversations about improving our current healthcare system. Future forums are planned for Westby and Viroqua, dates and times to come.
Neumann, a recently retired pediatrician who practiced in Africa, Madison and La Crosse from 1980 until 2019, will discuss what comprehensive single-payer coverage could look like in the U.S.
Hood, who grew up and trained in nursing in Canada, will contrast the Canadian single-payer system to the U.S. system.
