This movie reveals the personal impact on Canadians, who have universal health coverage, and on Americans, who don’t. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with Rev. Jones, and church members Dr. Fred Kauffman, and Dr. Jenette Wheeler. A light lunch will be provided.

Mohammad Darawshe is the Director of Planning, Equality and Shared Society at Givat Haviva, the Center for Shared Society in Israel. Mohammad is an Arab with an Israeli passport — a Muslim Palestinian citizen of the Jewish state. Like 20 percent of Israel's population, he is, as he puts it, “a child of both identities.” Mohammad will combine his unique, authentic perspective with his contextual knowledge of the realities in Israel. This will be coupled with descriptions of hope and actual progress currently taking place in Israel.
Mohammad brings an unexpected way of seeing inside the Middle Eastern present and future. He holds a B.A from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, an M.A. in Public Administration from Hartford University, and an M.A. in Peace and Conflict Management from Haifa University. He is considered a leading expert on Jewish-Arab relations. Mohammad has lectured internationally, received numerous awards, and frequently appears on Arab Satellite TV news programs analyzing current Israeli political and social trends.
