SiCKO-Cure Road Show in West Virginia

At the Blue Moose Cafe in Morgantown, local nurse Catherine Forman, far left, of the California Nurses Association and the National Nurses Organizing Committee, joined in a discussion of health care reform along with local PNHP doctor Peter Wentzel, far right, and West Virginia State Legislator Barbara Evans Fleischauer, next to Dr. Wentzel. Other local nurses joined the group as did Laura Jones, director of the Milan Puskar Health Right Clinic.

The SiCKO Cure Road Show crew spent the day in West Virginia meeting with medical students, physicians, local activists, nurses and community members though a heavy rain fell and threatened to leave flooding in its wake. Just as they have found in every city and state they have visited since leaving Chicago on Nov. 11, the road show team met concerned Americans with thoughtful questions and deep worry. Many mentioned friends or family members with no health care coverage or who had suffered at the hands of the current health care system. And all knew the time for change has been upon this nation for some time.
