To kick off the academic year, join PNHP NY Metro and student leaders from medical and public health schools across the city for a discussion of health professional student activism from the 1960s and today. In just a few years, Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP) has grown to over 50 chapters nationwide, with 8 chapters in the NY Metro area. Dr. Fein will share firsthand experience as a student leader with social movements, working with the Student Health Organization, Students for A Democratic Society and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, followed by a presentation from Hannah Moreira about the growth of the student movement for single payer health care.
After the event, join students for "SNaHPPY" hour at a local bar [TBD].

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a single issue organization advocating a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program. PNHP has 20,000 members and 40 chapters across the United States.
Since 1987, we've advocated for reform in the U.S. health care system. We educate physicians and other health professionals about the benefits of a single-payer system--including fewer administrative costs and affording health insurance for the 30 million Americans who have none.
Our members and physician activists work toward a single-payer national health program in their communities. PNHP performs ground breaking research on the health crisis and the need for fundamental reform, coordinates speakers and forums, participates in town hall meetings and debates, contributes scholarly articles to peer-reviewed medical journals, and appears regularly on national television and news programs advocating for a single-payer system.
PNHP is the only national physician organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to implementing a single-payer national health program.
