and healthcare for all


Sunday, January 5, Boise Weekly is hosting a healthcare meetup. Got a bitch about your healthcare? Let's hear it.

Here's the fine print:
Throughout the month of December, President-elect Barack Obama has called for small groups of Americans to meet in their local coffee shops and talk about health care reform. In January, the Boise Weekly is calling on all readers to storm the downtown streets and demand an equitable, comprehensive and 21st century health care system.

Wait! No storming the streets just yet.

Actually, we are hosting a Healthcare Meetup of our own on the subject of reform, to gauge the anger level of uninsured, underinsured and insured but unhappy Idahoans, brainstorm ideas for the future of health delivery in our cities and come up with a plan that works for all Americans.

We’re calling this summit the “It Hurts, Obama: BW Healthcare Meetup.”
Because everyone knows we are sick.

So join Boise Weekly at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 4, at the Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St.

Bring your doctor’s office horror stories, a notepad or personal digital assistant of your choice and your best ideas for getting America healthy again.

And just like a pap smear in Canada, this appointment won’t cost you a thing.

For updates on the It Hurts agenda, including resources to help you come better informed and infinite holiday cheer, check every day.
