George Lakey, sociologist, Quaker, activist, and former Swarthmore professor will speak via Zoom. Lakey says, “The Norwegian health care system, with the single-payer (the government) using taxes to administer the program, is more efficient and less expensive than the US model, with its emphasis on private health insurance companies. This means the coronavirus tests and treatment are free in Norway. Everyone’s on the same side: that of the patients’ wellbeing, and that translates into a level of trust in the government that is not shared in the US.” LINK to Zoom event can be found on meeting website. Worship follows at 11am via Zoom link.
