Please join the P&S and Mailman chapters of Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP) in Albany for the annual statewide lobby day to advocate for the New York Health Act - the bill to guarantee healthcare to ALL New Yorkers (like Medicare-for-all for New York State!)

The New York Health Act passed the Assembly in 2015 and 2016 with huge majority support. We need to pass it in the Assembly again this year and keep pushing the Senate to get this to the Governor's desk to make health care equality a reality for New Yorkers.

FREE transportation both ways will be provided for all students who register. We hope to have a large contingent from CUMC!

If you pre-register by March 27th, the Campaign for NY Health will provide you with training materials and plug you into a team for the lobby day meetings. Because we are targeting elected officials who have not yet signed on to support the New York Health Act, we cannot guarantee a meeting with your legislator. However, we are ALSO planning Thank You Brigades to acknowledges the legislators who have sponsored New York Health and taken a stand for healthcare for all. Please be in touch if you'd like to set up a meeting with your elected official for the day at info@pnhpnymetro.org.

Tentative Schedule for the day:
10:00am - Registration, Coffee and Bagels (location TBD)
10:15am - Briefing for the day (location TBD)
11:30am - Rally for universal health care (location TBD)
1 - 3:30pm - Meetings with legislators on the New York Health Act and "Thank You Brigades"

Questions? Email info@pnhpnymetro.org or call 212-580-2554

Hi all, After the recent defeat of the AHCA (Trumpcare/Ryancare), it is more important than ever that we work towards a universal, single-payer healthcare system in New York State and across the United States. Please sign up for the annual statewide lobby day in Albany on April 4th to advocate for the New York Health Act - the bill to guarantee healthcare to all New Yorkers through a single-payer system. Free bus transportation will be provided. Sign up here: http://www.nyhcampaign.org/lobbyday2017 *Note: for the first-year medical students, there is a psychiatry small group that day and this will not count as an excused absence. You may speak with your preceptor if you would like to attend.* To help prepare you to talk to legislators about single-payer healthcare, we'll have a lobby & advocacy skills training led by Katie Robbins, Executive Director of the NY-Metro Chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program. The training will be on Wednesday, March 29th, 11:30am-12:50pm at Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center (VEC), Room 1302-1303. Please feel free to show up whenever (come at 12 if you have class until then) - free lunch from Malecon will be served!

Here's a calculator that shows how much people would save under a single-payer, universal health system in NY. Please share and join us to lobby for the New York Health Act on April 4th!
