Michael Rocha, MD

Michael Rocha, MD, cardiologist and community speaker on a wide variety of wellness and illness issues, in collaboration with Marching Forward will be on hand to speak briefly and answer your questions on healthcare as part of the Lown Institute's Right Care Action Week. He explains: "We need to explore ways to provide health equity. 20% of GDP is going to health care which is over 3 trillion dollars and we aren't getting the return on investment. People can't afford premiums, deductibles are going up, and we aren't getting healthier as a nation. We need to understand why. We need to do something about it. This is not about politics, this is not about profit, this is about people. This is about the people that I see as a doctor. We as physicians have an oath and an obligation to be part of the discussion on how to improve the health of our community and the health of our nation. Join me on Nov 8 for the conversation."

Join us for a discussion and exploration of Healthcare for All. What healthcare systems would you prefer to see implemented?
