Nashville—Healthy City Town Hall at Parnassus Books
March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Dr. Jim Bailey is leading Healthy City Town Halls across the country to encourage people to join the movement to Reclaim Health Care that Heals. The Town Hall will get people in Nashville talking about how we can demand and get health care that truly heals for our community, our families, and ourselves at a price we all can afford. With all the recent debate about health reform, Americans are eager to discover the path to reclaiming their broken healthcare system and a brighter future for America in the process.
At the Healthy City Town Hall – Nashville at Parnassus Books, our three panelists are physicians who will present their perspectives about what is really happening in health reform. They will discuss the main ways Americans can demand and get health care that truly heals. Each panelist will speak for 5-10 minutes and then Dr. Bailey will moderate a question and answer period and panel discussion. This Healthy City Town Hall will offer everyday people a way to understand the real forces driving American medicine and show them how to demand and get health care that truly heals for themselves, their families, and their neighbors.
