THE POWER TO HEAL: A VIRTUAL FILM SHOWING AT 6 PM, MONDAY, FEB. 7. Power To Heal is an hour-long documentary about a dramatic chapter in the historic struggle to secure equal and adequate access to healthcare for all Americans. Central to the story is how a new national program, Medicare, was used to mount a momentous, coordinated effort that desegregated thousands of hospitals across the country practically overnight.
Followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Barbara Berney. Dr. Berney, a member of the retiree chapter, is a distinguished scholar in public health, environmental justice, and the U.S. health care system and an Emeritus Associate Professor at the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Management.
The retiree chapter and the Retiree Anti-Racism Committee are co-sponsors together with NY Labor History Association, Labor Arts and the NYU Tamiment-Wagner Collections.
