NEW BRITAIN – The New Britain Public Library in partnership with the New Britain Building Economic Equality (BEE NB) will hold a Healthcare in Crisis panel discussion on World Health Day.

“The U.S. does not have a healthcare system, instead we have a market for health-related goods and services in which corporations profit from the public’s ill-health,” the New Britain Building Economic Equity said in a release. “Now more than ever, the pandemic has exposed how our inadequate and inequitable for-profit healthcare system is failing the population.”

A panel of speakers will discuss the state of healthcare, the struggle for Medicare for all, the health insurance industry’s profiteering and the current landscape of healthcare in Connecticut on Thursday, April 7 at 6 p.m.

Panelists include Liz Dupont-Diehl, from the Connecticut Citizens Action Group, Bill Shortell, former New Britain DTC chair, Sivan Amar and Holly Hackett, founding members of Medicare 4 All Connecticut, and Sherri Dayton, president of the Backus Hospital Nurses Union/AFT Healthcare Council.

To register for the Healthcare in Crisis panel discussion, visit nbpl.info or call the New Britain Public Library information desk at 860-224-3155 ext. 125.
