The Mad as Hell Doctors, a group of six physicians, are making a nationwide tour from Washington State to Washington, DC in a large van to help the US public understand Single Payer Health Care Reform. They are debunking myths and misinformation about single payer and educating as they travel about the advantages of publicly-financed national health care as a solution to America’s health care crisis.

At 3:00 they will present gifts to the staff of the Department of Public Health and Wellness (400 East Gray St.) and the University of Louisville School of Public Health.
At 7:30 PM they will join a candlelight bridge walk across the Ohio River, memorializing the 45,000 annual American deaths due to lack of health care access. Please join the Mad as Hell Doctors and pass this information to your friends.
