Past Events

 


Single payer advocates met with Congressman Lacy Clay at his Gravois office in South Saint Louis to celebrate the fifty-first birthday of Medicare. He was presented with a Medicare birthday commemorative coffee mug with a photo of the world's largest Medicare card on one side, created by Pamella Gronemeyer. Congressman Clay was given scores of postcards from constituents urging him to protect and preserve traditional Medicare and to pass Improved Medicare for All into law. A discussion of the issues was followed by birthday cake.

Dr. Carol Paris, a Maryland psychiatrist and activist for single payer health care, will give this year’s annual Health Care Sunday Address at the Ethical Society of St. Louis, on April 15 at 11 a.m.

She was one of 13 doctors and health professionals arrested in May of 2009 for speaking up to demand that single payer be included in a Senate hearing on health care reform. Chairman Sen. Max Baucus of Montana allowed only for-profit insurers into the public debate.

Later in 2009 Dr. Paris was asked to represent the so-called ‘’Baucus 13’’ in a press conference that was aired over C-Span on Thanksgiving weekend. Since then she has held many briefings for Congressional staffers and spoken at health care forums nationwide.

The Health Care Sunday is sponsored each year by MoSP and the Ethical Society.
