Just Health Care Presents, “Health Care Around the World: the German System”

The Just Health Care Committee of the Labor Party will be holding a symposium called “Health Care Around the World: the German System.” In this event, led by Garrett Quinlivan and ACLP chair, Chad Hood, we will be discussing the merits of the German health care system versus the American one. There will be a presentation comparing the two health care systems, which will be followed by an open discussion and a choice sampling of German cuisine. The event location is still being determined, but the event is free and open to the public. Be sure to attend this informative and tasty event!
