Speaker will explain flaws of health-care system

Scott MacDiarmid, MD, will present the program “When I Die, You Die,” regarding the fall of the American health-care system.

MacDiarmid is director of the Alliance Urology Specialists Bladder Control and Pelvic Pain center in Greensboro. He completed fellowships in reconstructive urology and urodynamics at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, the University of Otago in Christchurch, New Zealand and the University of Sheffield in England.

Having lived and worked in a number of other countries, he is qualified to highlight why America could never accept a socialized health care system.

He will present his view that the fundamental flaw with American health care is that is infected with the greed virus. And finally, he will explain that when, as your physician, he dies, you the patient and the health of the entire nation dies.

This dinner event, sponsored by the English Speaking Union Salisbury Branch, will be held Thursday, Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Country Club of Salisbury. Tickets are $32 and it is open to all. RSVP to Gerry Wood, 704-216-2660 or www.gerrywoodauto.com
