Join us as author Rosemarie Day discusses her new book “Marching Toward Coverage: How Women Can Lead the Fight for Universal Healthcare” (Beacon Press, 2020). With 28 million Americans uninsured, and millions more who can’t afford their coverage, Day asks the fundamental question: Can we, as a nation, do better? Day believes we can and will—once women begin to engage collectively around this topic. This discussion will focus on galvanizing women to take action to make healthcare a right in the US.
Rosemarie Day helped lead the launch of health reform in Massachusetts in 2006, which became the model for the Affordable Care Act. She has been working on health reform ever since, and is passionate about universal healthcare and women's health issues. She is the founder and CEO of Day Health Strategies, a successful mission-driven, woman-owned consulting firm that just entered its 10th year. She is also a mother, a breast cancer survivor and an activist. She is the author of the book, Marching Toward Coverage: How Women Can Lead the Fight for Universal Healthcare (Beacon Press, 2020).
