Entertainment and education with the Mad as Hell Doctors

Charlotte Bolinger
Special to The Union

The Mad as Hell Doctors are bringing their fun, entertaining, and educational show to the Nevada Theatre, Oct. 11. With music, video and audience participation, these seven doctors help the public understand how single-payer health care would greatly reduce the cost of health care for everyone.

The Mad as Hell Doctors left their practices in Oregon, Washington and California last year to tour the U.S. during the health care debate that raged in Congress, where single-payer advocates were locked out of the discussion. Their message, supported by a majority of physicians in America, is that single-payer is the fiscally conservative, affordable way to provide universal health care to the many millions of Californians and other Americans who are uninsured and underinsured.

The Mad as Hell Doctors are again boarding their bus to tour 22 cities in our state to acknowledge the single-payer support of hundreds of organizations in California. Local professionals Dr. Roger Hicks of Yuba Docs, Dr. Eric Rubenstein, Nevada City psychiatrist and Genevieve Gartin, RN from SNMH will be part of the doctors’ panel.

The show in Nevada City is free, and doors open at 6 p.m. to allow people to listen to music by Coolhand Uke and the Enablers, watch California One Care celebrity videos, buy snacks by Summer Thyme’s and get their seats for the 7 p.m. show.

The program is sponsored by the Nevada County Chapter of Health Care for All, the League of Women Voters of California, the Peace Center, UU Community of the Mountains and Summer Thyme’s Bakery & Deli.

This event is dedicated to the memory of Terry Fieldhouse, a Nevada City citizen who worked long and hard advocating for single-payer health care.
