We are the only developed nation that does not guarantee health care to its citizens. Most civilized countries recognize that access to quality health care is a human right, and not a commodity to be bought, sold, and deprived of by corporations whose only objective is to maximize profits. The United Nations has recognized and declared that Health Care Is A Human Right. Now it is time for Florida and the rest of the United States to leave the Guilded Age behind and do likewise.

Sessions relating to health care as a human right are listed below.
