PRESENTED FOR AAUW GREENSBORO MEMBERS AND AFFILIATES IN COLLABORATION WITH AARP NC TRIAD
The POWER TO HEAL is a documentary that tells a poignant chapter in the historic struggle to secure equal and adequate access to healthcare for all Americans. Central to the story is the tale of how a new national program, Medicare, was used to mount a dramatic, coordinated effort that desegregated thousands of hospitals across the country in a matter of months.
Through the voices of the men and women who experienced disparities and fought against them, POWER TO HEAL will introduce a broad, missing link in the Civil Rights Movement — a struggle over healthcare from a half-century ago, that raises questions that resonate today: is healthcare a human right?
A panel discuss will follow the screening with the following:
Althea Taylor Jones, PhD, President, Southern Gerontology Society
Barbara Berney, PhD, Associate Professor at the City University of New York School of Public Health and Producer of The Power to Heal
Catherine Harvey Sevier, DPH, State President, AARP NC
Registration for the virtual program 6 to 8 p.m.
