Bring it Back, Take it Forward

Carrie Rheingans

Last weekend (March 12-14), many units at the University of Michigan and the Ann Arbor District Library supported a conference titled “Bring it Back, Take it Forward”, about 50 years of activism in southeastern Michigan. I spoke on Friday on the Health Activism panel as an AIDS activist, along with two physicians who have been activists for healthcare reform and a man who is a former UAW union member working for healthcare reform.

Odile Hugonot Haber (moderator), Dr. James Mitchiner, me (taking notes about what everyone's saying!), Dr. Andrew Zweifler, and Al Gladyck

A video of my panel will be in the Ann Arbor District Library’s video collection if you’d like to see how it went. AnnArbor.com invited Dr. Mitchiner to write a guest column about health reform after the bill passed.
