In the absence of action in Washington, DC toward real health care reform, attention has turned toward the states. With Vermont leading the way, activists in New York, California, Minnesota and elsewhere are stepping up the pace. We will review what is happening on the ground in these centers of single-payer activity.

Learning Areas:

Advocacy for health and health education

Public health or related public policy
Systems thinking models (conceptual and theoretical models), applications related to public health
