We will examine the current Health Care System in the US-
How has the Health Care Industry affected our health and access to health care? Should health care be considered a commodity? As a working group, we feel we need to educate our chapter on the mechanics and politics of our current health care system.
As Democratic Socialists, we need to be ready and informed as we move forward to mobilize for health care reform.
