Student Sustainability Collective: Public Health

A Conversation with T.R. Reid
APRIL 30, 2012 • 5:00pm – 8:00pm • AMN Healthcare (Del Mar / Carmel Valley) • $30 after April 23 and day of event


Apply for funding to attend a talk by T.R. Reid, Correspondent and Reporter for NPR and PBS, and author of “The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care”!


All the other free-market industrialized democracies provide health care of high quality for everybody —and yet they spend far less on health care than the USA. How do they do that? T. R. Reid circled the globe (twice) to find the answer; his reporting led to the national best-seller “The Healing of America” and two documentaries for PBS Frontline. Reid finds that it’s not all “socialized medicine” out there; many countries cover everybody with private doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies. Japan has more for-profit hospitals and more private health insurance companies than the U.S. —and it has better health outcomes, at less than half the cost.


The ticket price is now $30, purchased by phone or at the door on the day of the event. The Student Sustainability Collective (SSC) will provide full reimbursement for up to 15 students and is coordinating carpools to the event. Submit an application for funding before Friday, April 27th and you will be notified by email the next day if SSC can cover your cost.


The SSC Public Health Team is building a UCSD coalition for single-payer in California in collaboration with CaHPSA (California Health Professional Student Alliance.) We hope this event will be a kick-off for our educational outreach and invite you to be involved with the core team of the coalition. Please indicate on the form if you are interested in being a part of the coalition in any capacity. Fill out the funding application today and join us in organizing and educating in the future!
