Healthcare Summit in Dayton April 8 (Sat. 8 Apr, 2017 9:30 am - 11:30 am)

SPAN Ohio is holding a healthcare Summit in 2 weeks! You have heard the attacks on our healthcare system. Now is the time that we must come together to not only defend healthcare but to move forward.


Would you like to help us make a difference? Single Payer Action Network (SPAN) Ohio has a plan. SPAN Ohio is committed to a sustainable, efficient health care system that provides access for everyone with no financial barriers. Single payer is a proven system working effectively in many advanced economies providing better health outcomes for their citizens for less money than we now spend.


We are bringing together a diversity of local groups, business interests, labor unions, faith groups and individuals to discuss the way forward. We want to make our movement as inclusive as possible. This event is being held to make sure that everyone with concerns about healthcare can discuss issues that are important to them and help us make SPAN a group that works for everyone.


When: Saturday, April 8th, 1:30pm-3:30pm


Where: Dayton Cultural and RTA Center, 40 S Edwin C Moses Blvd, Dayton, OH 45402

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you there! 

National Day of Action for Single Payer (Sat. 8 Apr, 2017 9:30 am - 10:30 am)

Actions are taking place all across the U.S.  SPAN Ohio is sponsoring an action at the Market Square Park across from the West Side Market, NW corner of W 25th Street and Lorain Avenue in Cleveland, OH. We'll remain for about an hour, then gather together to socialize and strategize.


We need to improve health care to stop the high premiums, high deductibles and high co-pays associated with the ACA. Fortunately there is an answer that has been tried in countries around the world--Single Payer Enhanced and Improved Medicare-for-All.


Join us on Saturday April 8 at 1:30 p.m. as we join tieh others around the country to highlight the most cost effective, human-friendly way out of the health insurance crisis.
