A lively, clear explanation of the American health care reform movement from a noted expert - giving women the tools they need to demand better care for themselves and their families
Healthcare access is a human right, but it's treated as a privilege. Healthcare is America's largest, most dysfunctional industry, and women bear the brunt of this problem when it comes to both access and treatment. Founder and CEO of Day Health Strategies Rosemarie Day wants women to recognize their trouble with accessing affordable care as part of a nation-wide emergency - and she wants everyone to get involved in demanding better healthcare for all.
Women, who make 80% of health care decisions for their families, are disproportionately impacted by this issue - and uniquely poised to take action. With more than 25 years working in healthcare strategy, Day steps in to de-wonk the conversation and help the average American understand the business of national health reform. Health coverage is a deeply fraught political and social issue, and well-funded special interest groups have had almost exclusive access to politicians' ears for too long.
From the 50-year-old who is delaying cancer screening because she can't pay the deductible, to the expecting parents who aren't sure if their policy covers prenatal care, to anyone anxious about losing their coverage because of a pre-existing condition - Americans are overwhelmed and underserved by their insurance options.
Delivered as a feminist argument for equity, Day proves that now is the time for women nationwide to share their stories and take decisive leadership in the progressive movement for more just healthcare across our nation.
