Healthcare Storytelling and Letter-writing + Potluck

The January potluck of the Hive Mutual Support Network will feature a letter-writing and storytelling workshop, facilitated by the Healthcare Is A Human Right campaign of the Vermont Workers’ Center. As with all Hive activities, this event is open to the public.

The vision of the campaign is that our healthcare system should guarantee all of us access to care we need. Sharing our experiences with the healthcare system is an important way we can change the public narrative about healthcare to one that is human-centered, rather than being framed in terms of costs, profits, and policy that is divorced from our lives.
