(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) Healthcare Issues with Susan Dentzer

Aug 16, 2018
9:00 am to 11:30 am
Alumni House 104 (Boulder Society Room)

For many years, predictable social order prevailed in the U.S. However, there is now a rising tide of dug-in polarization due to the rapid growth of minorities and the emergence of fundamental inequalities, resulting in an increasing number of Americans feeling "left behind." Whenever change happens quickly, there are always loud voices of dissent that want to return to the good old times. This has created a populist furor in America. The more this furor rises, the more our country feels hopelessly divided. This session provides perspective on how America can end the divisiveness that is currently undermining its strength domestically and in the world. Simply stated, how can we unite Americans again? Our future depends on it.
