Downtown Klamath County Library

Spiraling healthcare costs seem to take a bigger and bigger chunk out of business and family budgets every year – but what can the average citizen do about it? The local chapter of the League of Women Voters will be hosting a series of documentary screenings about healthcare reform at the downtown Klamath County Library, and they invite you to stay and discuss what you’ve seen after the film.

Here’s an overview of what’s on deck:

  • Tuesday, August 29th at 6:30 pm – Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping PointManufacturing businessman Richard Master is frustrated with the cost of covering his employee’s health insurance. Researching the problem leads him to a conclusion: a single-payer system, where the government handles the administrative side of health care, would cut out a great deal of the inefficiencies that make health insurance so expensive. The film is unrated and runs for 41 minutes.
  • Tuesday, September 19th at 6:30 pm – Big Pharma: Market Failure.  The filmmakers of Fix It tackle problems in the pharmaceutical industry, from rising drug prices to the glut of “ask your doctor about…” commercials on TV. The film is unrated and runs for 38 minutes.
