SaneVax announces Vice President of Public Relations, Leslie Carol Botha, to interview Dr. Margaret Flowers on community radio station KRFC FM 88.9 Fort Collins, CO.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Jul 15, 2011 – The one-hour show will air on Monday July 18 from 6 to 7 pm MST and will be audio streamed at http://krfcfm.org. Dr. Flowers will be addressing the need for a publicly financed single-payer health system, otherwise known as ‘an improved Medicare for all.’
Women’s Health talk show host, Leslie Carol Botha will be interviewing Flowers on her radio segment titled ‘Holy Hormones Honey- The Greatest Story Never Told.’
Flowers’ is a congressional fellow for Physicians for a National Health Program, a nonprofit research and education organization consisting of health professionals and students who support a single-payer national health insurance model. The former director of the pediatric hospital program and chief of pediatrics at a rural Maryland hospital, she left practice in 2007 to work full-time on health care reform.
The reason Dr. Margaret Flowers works to advocate a universal, single-payer health care model, is because she wasn’t able to provide the quality of care she wanted to as a pediatrician. Flowers said she was pressured to see more patients in less time, and had to compromise her integrity by not being fully honest to insurance companies about patient problems.
Flowers feels that corporate influences from insurance companies have made it difficult for citizens to get the care they need. She said 51 million Americans have no insurance, and over 10 million became ‘under-insured’
Celebrating 46 years this month, Medicare continues to pay for the health care of 47 million Americans. Medicare has improved the health of our seniors, reduced their risk of poverty, and improved the financial security of their families.
