About

Ady Barkan was diagnosed with ALS in 2016. Ever since, he and his family have struggled to keep up with insurance paperwork, doctors’ bills, and prescription drugs. 

For the last three years, Ady and Be A Hero have been fighting our representatives in Washington to replace our unjust, predatory, and discriminatory health care system with coverage that protects the American people.

The presidential candidates and their campaigns are doing their best. But the composed speeches, the empty one-liners, and stilted debates have not given us better health care.

Ady knows it well: there is never enough time, but everything is at stake.

That’s why he decided to host “Uncovered: Health Care Conversations with Ady Barkan.”

This collaboration between Ady, Be A Hero, NowThis News, and Crooked Media consists of interviews with the candidates who want to lead our nation, and features the stories of Americans who have had personal experiences with our unjust health care system.

Confirmed candidates include:
Bernie Sanders
Cory Booker
Kamala Harris
Elizabeth Warren
Pete Buttigieg
