This Sunday February 13, CBC Radio’s Cross-Country Check-up will ask the question “Health care woes: What’s your prescription?”

In a special broadcast from The Forum at Red Deer College in Alberta, those in the audience and people calling in from across the country will look at Canada’s Medicare system and what should be done to strengthen it.

The phone-in number is 1-888-416-8333 (active only during the broadcast).

Call in and voice your support for increased funding, an end to for-profit services, increased beds and staff, and an expansion of the system to include a national home care and prescription drug program.
