Filmmaker joins health tour at Sunflower
The League of Women Voters of Colorado is sponsoring a ColoradoCare Western Slope Tour with author, lecturer and filmmaker T.R. Reid.
The tour started in Grand Junction on March 21 and concludes in Cortez on Friday, March 25, at 7 p.m. at the Sunflower Theatre, 8 E. Main St. The League of Women Voters of Montezuma County and the Cortez Rotary Club will sponsor a public meeting about ColoradoCare Amendment 69, an initiative on the November 2016 Colorado ballot. Reid is the featured speaker.
T.R. Reid’s documentary film “Sick Around the World” precedes the presentation at the Sunflower Theatre at 6 p.m.
The League of Women Voters of Colorado support ColoradoCare, a resident-owned, non-governmental health-care financing system designed to ensure comprehensive and quality health care for Coloradans. By reducing administrative and other nonmedical costs, ColoradoCare would cover all residents and cost less than the current system, said Barbara Mattison, President of League of Women Voters of Colorado.
Reid’s documentary films, Washington Post reporting and 2009 book “The Healing of America” have earned national acclaim. Reid has made documentary films for National Geographic Television, PBS, and the A&E Network. His latest PBS film is “U.S. Health Care: The Good News,” which is being broadcast by PBS affiliates around the country.
