BPW Denver and Virtual chapters are happy to be hosting Dr. Jessica Schorr Saxe, MD, Chair of Health Care Justice-NC and Board member of Physicians for a National Health Program, as our next speaker for our Back to Basics series. We will be meeting at 7pm on March 24th, where she will be presenting “Medicare for All: Good for America, Good for Business, Good for You.”
This is an introduction to Medicare for All: what it is, how it will be funded, why it is eminently affordable, how the pandemic has made it even more clear that it is needed, and how it will help the country, business, and individuals.
Dr. Jessica Schorr Saxe worked as a family physician for the underserved for Carolinas HealthCare System for 34 years before retiring in 2015. In practice, she saw daily examples of people who did not get needed care for financial reasons, which strengthened her conviction that everyone should have access to health care.
She chairs Health Care Justice—NC, which advocates improved Medicare for All as the most effective, economic way to extend high-quality health care to all. It is a chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program of which she is on the national board.
She has won many awards, including the Council for Children Dolly award for child advocacy, the Mecklenburg County Medical Society President’s Award, and the YWCA Woman of Achievement award.
A graduate of Oberlin College and Tufts University School of Medicine, she did her family medicine residency at Duke. She is married and has 4 children and 2 grandchildren.
