The Future of Health Care
One summer night, the Healthy Artists team partnered up with the indie glam-rock band Dazzletine to host a community-wide conversation around the topic: “The Future of Health Care”. We invited health care advocates to explain the Affordable Care Act and single-payer healthcare in comprehensible terms. Then, we asked young people, the demographic most often uninsured and underinsured, to think about how we can change the system.

The Affordable Care Act: An Appeal
Daniel Menges is a 23-year-old photographer, artist, and recent college graduate who just moved to Pittsburgh, PA from NY. He was just starting to get his footing when a bike accident left him with three fractured vertebrae. Fortunately – because of the Affordable Care Act – his medical care is covered under his mother’s health insurance plan. Although the ACA isn’t perfect, it’s a step in the right direction. We made this video in the summer of 2012, weeks before the ACA faced the threat of repeal. This video shows us why continued health care reform is so important.
