Due to popular demand the Nevada County Chapter of Healthcare for all and Nevada County doctors for Affordable Healthcare will repeat the showing of the documentary “Heath, Money and Fear” followed by a panel discussion with local healthcare professionals. Event organizer, Mindy Oberne says the film is produced by emergency room doctor Paul Hockfeld of Oregon, and the Panelists include Drs. Roger Hicks, Christine Newsom, Johathan Pierce and Jeff Kane and people can learn about what’s broken with the present health care system.
“So there’s that aspect that drives cost up over testing. Another reason for over testing is litigation. Doctors have to protect themselves from getting sued and then on the patient’s part, one thing our American lifestyle does not necessarily promote a healthy lifestyle, so that’s driving our cost up.”
The event is at the Nevada Theatre on Broad Street in Nevada City tonight. Doors open at 5:45 pm and the program starts at 6:30. Admission is free.
