Welcome to Justice Saturday. Today Alice Faryna will share her thoughts on pandemics, healthcare, and more.

 

Alice’s bio: I am an internist with a specialty in rheumatology. My last job was as the Medical Director for Medicare part B for Ohio and West Virginia. It was there I learned that the government can do things well. In retirement I joined the Single Payer Action Network of Ohio which advocates universal health insurance based on the Medicare model. The stay-at-home restrictions find me talking to my cat a lot, long walks in around Upper Arlington, and doing more painting and writing.

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
