Sat Jul 7 2012 (Updated 07/09/12) California Nurses Association Supports Medicare for All, Provides Free Health Screenings
California Nurses Strike at Sutter Operated Hospitals Several hundred nurses demonstrated in front of the Alta Bates Medical Center which is operated by Sutter Health on July 3rd. The Berkeley hospital was one of seven Sutter hospitals in the San Francisco Bay area where nurses held a one-day strike. The strike was organized by the California Nurses Association (CNA) .

The CNA Medicare for All bus tour is crisscrossing the state with stops in nearly two dozen sites ending ending July 12. It features basic health screenings and town hall meetings where community members are invited to tell their healthcare stories. The focus of the healthcare tour is a call to step up the drive for guaranteed, universal, cost-effective health reform once and for all by expanding and updating Medicare to cover everyone regardless of age. photo Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | California Nurses Association
