The briefing is sponsored by state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, chair of the Senate health committee, who is pushing a new healthcare reform bill.
Moore will follow up his visit with a rally on the steps on the state capitol that features the group Physicians for a National Health Program. That evening he'll screen "Sicko" for RN's. doctors and others.The California Nurses Assn. and the National Nurses Assn. Organizing Committee also is involved in promoting the film as well as Kuehl's bill and a national effort to establish a single payer system.
