Posted: 4/4/2017 (Local Events)
Faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend a presentation and discussion of the arguments for health care as a right of democratic citizenship, as advanced in CSDE Affiliate Gunnar Almgren’s newly released book—Health Care as a Right of Citizenship: The Continuing Evolution of Reform.
The event will feature Almgren offering a brief overview of the evolution of American exceptionalism in health care, explaining the current political and social context that motivated the book, and unpacking the book’s main arguments. A discussion, facilitated by UW Professor of Philosophy Bill Talbott, with and among the audience will follow. The event is free and open to the entire three-campus UW community.
