Student Debate on Health Care

Get ready for an exciting, suspenseful and passionate debate between two student clubs! Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society will go up against Student Senate in this year's debate on the topic "Health Care: Who Should Provide It?". PTK will argue that private industry should provide health care, while Student Senate will take the position that the federal government should be responsible. The debate on this timely topic is sure to affect and inform anyone who watches it. Stop by Laub Lounge on Tuesday, January 27 at 11 a.m. to hear the discussion. You may even get to help choose the winning team!

The NCC Libraries have many resources on health care and related issues, so if you find yourself researching this topic for an English paper or Speech Communications project, be sure to take a look at what we have.
