Please join us on Sunday, July 8th at 3 p.m. for a forum with local religious leaders.
Amidst a highly partisan and sometimes toxic debate regarding healthcare, most can agree that the system in the US is a mess. While its the most expensive healthcare system compared with that in other nations, several measures of health outcomes in the US indicate the system functions inadequately for a significant part of the population.
To revive a civil and productive discussion on healthcare, we must first consider the goals and visions we have of the system. This involves a consideration of our moral and ethical values regarding the role of the community in the health of the individual. One question of particular relevance is whether access to healthcare a basic human right.
Please join religious leaders from our community as they describe how their faith informs them on this issue.
Participating in the forum are: Pastor Rick Jackson (Olivet AME Church), Father Fidelis Olokunboro (Notre Dame), Imam Mohammad Sirajuddin (Islamic Society of Michiana), Reverend James Miller (Sunnyside Presbytarian Church) and Rabbi Michael Friedland (Sinai Synagogue).
