Sense and Nonsense in Contemporary Discussions of Medicare at #SalemOR Hospital – Tues. May 22nd

Sense and Nonsense in Contemporary Discussions of Medicare

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 | 7:00 PM

Salem Hospital | Wedel Auditorium, Building B

In the 5+ decades since Medicare became law, politicians have continued their love/hate attitude toward the program: They both embrace the medical care given to their elderly constituents and promote changes to the policy – either to expand or shrink it. How should American medical policy move forward?

This special program is free and open to the public.

Theodore R. Marmor, PhD is emeritus professor of public policy and management at Yale University School of Management and the author of The Politics of Medicare. He has written and presented extensively on social security, healthcare policy, and healthcare reform since his participation in the creation of Medicare in 1965 as aide to the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare. The author or co-author of thirteen books, Marmor has published over two hundred articles in a wide range of scholarly journals, as well as being a frequent op-ed contributor to U.S. and Canadian newspapers. He is currently on the editorial boards of the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis and the Journal of Health, Politics, Policy and Law. He has also been one of our national senior doubles squash champions.

Kieke Okma, PhD, most recently a Visiting Professor at McGill University in Canada has spoken around the world on international healthcare policy. She has been a Senior Policy Advisor to the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport in the Netherlands, an advisor to the World Bank on health policy, and a participant in other international health policy agencies. She has been published in several languages on healthcare policy and economics. One of her articles, co-authored with her husband Dr. Marmor, was “A Dutch Model for Medicare? Sobering Lessons from the Netherlands’ Experience with Competition” (2011) in the New England Journal of Medicine.

This program is co-sponsored by Salem Health and the Oregon chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program.

All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 | 6:30 PM

Salem Public Library | Louck’s Auditorium

Featuring footage from the last six decades, All Governments Lie is a timely, convincing documentary that will cause audiences to question what they see and read.” (LA Times)

Independent media stars Amy Goodman, Michael Moore, Matt Taibbi, Jeremy Scahill, and Glenn Greenwald make their case against the Mainstream Media with the help of Washington Post’s Carl Bernstein, academic Noam Chomsky & Ralph Nader. Doc presents them as heirs to I.F. “Izzy” Stone, whose work is presented in a thumbnail sketch.

Jeff Cohen, who appears in the film and is the director of the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College, will introduce the film and lead a post-screening Q & A.
