POWER TO HEAL is an hour-long public television documentary that tells a poignant chapter in the historic struggle to secure equal and adequate access to healthcare for all Americans. Central to the story is the tale of how a new national program, Medicare, was used to mount a dramatic, coordinated effort that desegregated thousands of hospitals across the country in a matter of months.

A post-screening discussion will focus on progress that’s been made, andwork that still needs to be done.
The esteemed panel will include:

  • Barbara Berney, PhD, MPH, Project Creator-Producer for POWER TO HEAL
  • Gloria Essoka, PhD, RN, retired nurse educator and administrator
  • Katherine Hempstead, PhD, Senior Policy Adviser at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
  • Denise V. Rodgers, MD, Vice Chancellor for Interprofessional Programs at Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences
