MARCHING TOWARD COVERAGE, BY ROSEMARIE DAY:
Health care reform expert and CEO, Rosemarie Day, who is also a breast cancer survivor, has just finished writing a book to galvanize women to take action to make health care a right in the US. Its title is "Marching Toward Coverage: How Women Can Lead the Fight for Universal Healthcare" (Beacon Press, 2020). With 28 million Americans uninsured, and millions more who can't afford their coverage, Day asks the fundamental question: Can we, as a nation, do better? Day believes we can and will -- once women begin to engage collectively around this topic. Day brings a feminist lens to the universal health care debate and seeks to empower more women to engage in that debate. She simplifies complex policy ideas about making change in the health care coverage system into an approachable and engaging framework. She combines a personal perspective on health policy with a professional perspective -- she's at once a health policy expert, strategist, and implementer, as well as a mother, daughter and friend who has faced some challenging health issues. She offers no easy panacea, but instead delivers a pragmatic path forward, one that recognizes health care as a fundamental human right, factors in the role of social determinants, and ensures coverage for all.
