Rosemarie Day, author of “Marching Toward Coverage: How Women Can Lead the Fight for Universal Healthcare.”

With 28 million Americans uninsured, and millions more who can’t afford their coverage, an event next week asks: Can we, as a nation, do better? Rosemarie Day, health care reform expert and chief executive of consulting firm Day Health Strategies, believes we can and will – once women begin to engage collectively around this topic. She speaks from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday to promote the release of her book, “Marching Toward Coverage: How Women Can Lead the Fight for Universal Healthcare.”

This Cambridge Main Library event was originally planned for March as part of its Women’s History Month programming, before the coronavirus made the gathering impossible. Now she’ll be talking online in conversation with Deborah Gordon, author of “The Health Care Consumer’s Manifesto.” The long-delayed event was to include a discussion followed by a Q&A, focused on galvanizing women to take action to make health care a right in the United States.

Participants can register for the event here, and copies of the book are available for purchase online or in person at Porter Square Books, 25 White St., Porter Square. The event is co-sponsored by the Cambridge Commission on the Status of Women.


This post was updated to change the date of the event, which was postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
