I am holding a poetry reading at the Paramount, 701 W Sheridan, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on September 22 at 3:30pm, featuring the poetry of Lauren Zuniga, to raise awareness of the historic opportunity the people of Oklahoma will have to get affordable, high quality health insurance starting Oct 1, 2013.

However, nearly 78% of people who will be eligible for this benefit do not know it. That is why it is so important to me, as a doctor, to spread the word about the new marketplace where buying health insurance will be a more pleasant experience than it is currently. For most Americans now, one serious illness can mean bankruptcy, often even if they have insurance. That all changes January 1, 2014, when coverage will start for people who sign up by December 15.

Will you support me in making a difference in the lives of working American families – their health, their financial security, and their peace of mind - knowing that they have good insurance? Even $10 will help – but the more you contribute, the more people we will be able to reach. Thank you so much!

Doctors for America Race for Coverage

One in 7 Americans right now has no health insurance.  Every year, 26,000 Americans die because they can't afford the health care they need.  
Starting October 1, 30,000,000 uninsured Americans will be able to sign up for health insurance at HealthCare.gov. Far too few people know about this opportunity.  And the misinformation campaigns are only getting louder.

As doctors and medical students and supporters, we bring a trusted voice to help get people insured.  
But we need your help.  Through the Race for Coverage, we're walking, running, biking, and swimming in community races from 5K's to marathons in the summer and fall. Every $5 we raise will help us get one person the health insurance they need. $50 will help 10 people.  Imagine the lives we can save together.

Please support us with a donation or by joining our team!
