Healthcare Emergency Update: Town Hall Sun. RSVP Now!
Dr. Bill Honigman for the PDA National Team
At Progressive Democrats of America (PDA), our advocates for Healthcare as a Human Right, remain gravely concerned that #COVID19 continues to ravage our traditionally medically underserved communities with untold suffering, loss, and preventable deaths as a result. Vaccine, like all of COVID-care and Healthcare in general, is not yet getting to all who need it, especially to those at even greater risk in our communities of color.
Studies recently made public confirm these inequities, including that as many as 40 percent of total COVID-19 fatalities in the U.S. were preventable if we had public health directed by and paid for with a #SinglePayer expanded and improved #MedicareForAll system.
It’s past time we did.
