Part Two: Inequality – Threat to Your Health?

People in countries with great income inequality, like America, have poorer health.

We have more drug abuse, obesity and mental problems. Our lives are shorter. Even the well to do suffer. If America’s incomes were more equal, would you be healthier?

Each forum is taped in front of a studio audience for later broadcast on Milwaukee Public Television, Channel 10.1. The forums are free and open to the public. Bring your lunch and a friend. Join the discussion by asking a question of the guests.

FORUM DATE AND TIME: February 10, NOON

WHERE: Milwaukee Turner Hall, 2nd Floor, 1034 N. 4th Street, Main entrance across from the Bradley Center on 4th (please pardon the construction); elevator access off the parking lot on 4th and Highland.
