Date:3/17/2009

Nurses, Doctors, Patients Call for Guaranteed Healthcare on the Single-Payer Model... And an End to Insurance Industry Denial of Care

WASHINGTON, March 17 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT: Hundreds of healthcare activists from throughout New England and across the country will rally outside the White House's latest regional summit on healthcare, and demand that Congress include single-payer reforms in its debate and discussion, including U.S. Rep. John Conyers' HR 676

WHO: A broad coalition of healthcare reformers brought together by the Leadership Conference on Guaranteed Healthcare, which includes the National Nurses Organizing Committee/California Nurses Association (NNOC/CNA), Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), Healthcare Now, and Progressive Democrats of America (PDA)

WHEN: Tuesday March 17th; rally @ 11:30 a.m. featuring Dr. Deb Richter from PNHP

WHERE: Davis Center, University of Vermont-Burlington

WHY: "We can look around the world's other industrialized democracies and see very clearly that a guaranteed healthcare system, such as an expanded and improved 'Medicare for All,' is the only way to provide patients with the care they need. We will come to Vermont to make sure that Congress hears from the nation's healthcare reformers as they are drafting this life-and-death legislation," said Geri Jenkins, RN, co-President of NNOC/CNA
