Health care film compares U.S. and Canadian systems

On Tuesday, November 3, the First Tuesday Educational Forum sponsored by the Nevada County Democrats will show the documentary “The Health Care Movie,” which demonstrates how the United States and Canadian health care systems turned out vastly different, even though they were essentially the same in the 1950’s. Canadians now experience the benefits and peace of mind provided by a system of universal medical care, while Americans spend twice as much per capita on health care than any other country in the world and the United States ranks last in quality of care among industrialized nations. The 65-minute film will be followed by a discussion period. There will also be volunteer sign-ups for the California Care Force free medical clinic to be held in Grass Valley on November 14 and 15.

This free event takes place at 5:30 p.m. the Banner Grange, 12629 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley. Pizza and salad will be provided and beverages will be available for purchase. For more information, call 530-265-3367 or visit
