Wednesday, November 15, Health Care Sound Off
What do you want from your health care? Does the current system address your needs? What aspects of health care could be changed to improve your experience? If you have stories, concerns, opinions to share, or if you want to listen to others’ experiences with health care, join us on Wednesday, November 15 at 1 pm at the Brookline Senior Center for a timely discussion about your healthcare at the Health Care Sound-Off! There is no charge for the program and refreshments will be served.

This event is organized by a local chapter of the Right Care Alliance, a grassroots movement that brings together health professionals and patient advocates to organize for a health care system that is affordable, accessible, equitable. We believe that health care is a right and that coverage should be universal: everybody in, nobody out. For over a year, we have been touring around the Greater Boston Area to hear stories from people like you about their health care concerns and needs. For more information, visit our website: http://rightcarealliance.org/. To register or for more information please call Deidre Waxman at 617-730-2767 or .
