Community Health Panel: Economic & Social Disparities in Health Care & Services @ 4:30 PM, Tuesday 1/14/14, Rockefeller 003

The passage and implementation of the Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," has placed issues of health care access in the spotlight. Building off the public debate surrounding Obamacare, the Los Angeles Poverty Department and Wunderbaum will be performing Hospital in Moore Theater on Friday and Saturday, January 17th and 18th at 8 pm. The US-Dutch theater collaboration will be bringing to the Hop "a raucous, inventive and engrossing multimedia ficto-commentary on the absurdities and outrages of modern medicine."

In order to preface the performance, the artists, in conjuction with local representatives, will conduct panel discussion open to the general public. John Malpede and Kevin Michael Key of the Skid Row-based Los Angeles Poverty Department, the Upper Valley Haven's Sara Kobylenski and Good Neighbor Health Clinic's Ceil Furlong will discuss and examine economic and social disparities in health care and access to health services in a community context with a special focus on wellness and health care in the Upper Valley, particularly as they relate to poverty.
