Next OPS Office Hours: Tuesday, Jun 16, 2020
4 – 7 PM Pacific Time
7 – 10 PM Eastern Time
OPS Office Hours provides presentations and specialized help for advocates for a publicly-funded universal health care program for the United States. Whether you want to learn more about how a health care system like that would work in the United States, or want to get to work advocating for it, we welcome you to drop in at your convenience during our online trainings.
4 PM PT/7 ET Gather, get acquainted, find out whether any want help on a specific topic instead of the presentation. People who arrive after 4:15 are absolutely welcome, but will be muted during presentations until the Q+A and will need to use the chat bar if they want specialized help in a breakout room.
4:15 PM PT / 7:15 PM ET, Ed Weisbart, MD, a speaker and instructor for Physicians for a National Health Program, will present a basic 20-minute, COVID-relevant talk as a model for a skeptical or conservative audience, then spend another 10-20 minutes going back through parts of it to unpack how the specific word choices applied some of the principles from the May 26 talk, saving plenty of time for discussion. His May 26 presentation is here: https://youtu.be/1Ph95zfRvE4
At 5:30 PM PT/ 8:30 PM ET, on June 16, David Belk, MD, will be returning, to give “Part II” of his talk drawing on research he did while writing The Great American Health Care Scam. This talk will be focused on the insurance industry and Medicare. Here is a recording of Part I: https:// youtu.be/rhlwJeeDWZA?t=1
These talks will be in the main room to facilitate recording, and save time not having to put a lot of people into a room manually. During presentations and the subsequent Q+A, guests who come to Office Hours for other topics will need to use the chat box to tell us what they are looking for help with, and can be put in a breakout room with another volunteer.
