Be a Healthcare Hero: A Community Call to Action with Ady Barkan

  • Bloomington City Hall 401 North Morton Street Bloomington, IN, 47404 United States (map)

Join us, Hoosier Action, and special guest healthcare hero Ady Barkan, on July 23rd at 5:30 pm on the Bloomington City Hall steps for the unveiling of our Care Agenda, which includes:

1. Protecting and expanding healthcare for all Hoosiers
Passing the Comprehensive Addiction Resources Emergency (CARE) Act

2. Eliminating harmful state policies and unnecessary red tape which are used to deny Hoosiers the healthcare we deserve

3. Calling for at least 2% of every Indiana city and county budget to be dedicated to compassionate drug and mental health treatment

Every Hoosier knows someone who has faced hard times because of healthcare problems. Or maybe you are that person. Too many Hoosiers either can’t get the care they need or have to choose between paying rent and utilities or paying medical bills and filling prescriptions. Doctors and other service providers in Indiana have to struggle with an underfunded and over-complicated bureaucracy that often keeps them from providing the quality of healthcare they want to provide for their patients. Hoosiers struggling with mental health issues or addiction often have no place to turn and, even if they can access services, there isn’t enough money to pay for them. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical and insurance company profits explode. These same companies then line the pockets of the very politicians who are supposed to be working for us. Millionaires get richer, and the rest of us get sicker.
It does not have to be like this. Together we can change the state of Hoosier healthcare.
