UNCW students discuss healthcare reform

Video

Body

The healthcare debate came to UNCW Friday. The College Republicans sponsored “Hands Off my Healthcare”. Speakers, including radio host Curtis Wright, talked about details of the proposed healthcare reform.

Organizers said college students need to be more involved in the healthcare reform. They hoped the event would spark debate and discussion throughout the campus.

“If we brought it to them, instead of maybe just handing out flyers, which is also what we’re doing, but having actual speakers – they could just come by on the way to class and learn something in passing,” said Ryan Ivey of College Republicans. “We know they probably won’t just come to a forum or come to a conference.”

Some students signed a petition to stop the government’s healthcare reform; others spoke in favor of the proposal.

No matter how students felt about the issue, the event helped start the discussion.
