SPEAKER: Maz Hadaegh
PROGRAM: Medicare For All
The U.S. healthcare system’s per capita cost is approximately twice as much as our international peers, and leaves 30 million people uninsured, and over 40 million under-insured. This results in 68,000 deaths per year, 500,000 medical related bankruptcies, stagnation of wages, and a less healthy population than our international peers. This presentation will provide an overview of single payer healthcare like Medicare For All, and explain how it will significantly alleviate all these problems and bring healthcare equity and justice.
Maz Hadaegh is an electrical engineering program manager who specializes in wireless systems. He has lived in San Diego for almost 30 years. In the last 5 years, Maz has grown increasingly alarmed by the failures of our healthcare system, and has been volunteering as a single payer healthcare activist alongside members of his community.
Also we expect to be hearing from County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher sometime during our meeting as well.
