College and Oleander is one of the busiest intersections in Wilmington, and it regularly attracts people with a cause. Wednesday night it was the location of a health care reform. It was part of a nationwide vigil in more than 300 cities. At a minimum, most of these community activists want to get the public health care option back on the table. Wilmington primary care physician Marsha Fretwell is one of them. “I think that everyone in this country should be able to have the option to be able to go to a doctor and not have to worry about if the have the money to do that,” said Fretwell. “I personally think it's a moral obligation for our country to provide this. I think at a minimum we need to have a public option to go into competition with the private insurers.” Dr. Marsha Fretwell is a geriatrician. She said the country is spending enough money on health care, but it needs to be spent differently.
