SiCKO Screening at Zocalo on Thursday

The San Leandro Community Action Network (SLCAN) will be showing Michael Moore's SiCKO on Thursday, April 2, 2009.

This documentary takes a look at the U.S. health care system and compares it to those of Great Britain, Canada, and France while highlighting the stories of everyday people in their quest for basic health care.

After the film, there will be a discussion about Sutter Health's plans for San Leandro Hospital's emergency room and other services. After Sutter Health purchased San Leandro Hospital in 2004, there has been widespread speculation that it would close the hospital, since Sutter also owns nearby Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley.

Admission is free and the screening begins at 7pm at Zocalo Coffeehouse. Zocalo is located at 645 Bancroft Avenue in San Leandro.
