The Truth About the Veterans Administration

WHEN: November 11, 2014 at 7:30pm - 9pm
WHERE: Beth Israel's Phillips Ambulatory Care Center

2nd floor Auditorium


Earlier this year, media coverage surrounding the Veteran's Administration (VA) was rampant, claiming excessive waiting times for veterans. Mainstream media emphasized problems with government-run health care, but wait times are not exclusive to the VA. In fact, PNHP researchers point out that there are an estimated 45,000 deaths per year because people couldn't get the care they needed when they needed it. So...did we get the whole story on the VA?

Join PNHP NY Metro for a conversation with physicians who will share first hand accounts about delivering care in the VA, the U.S. model of socialized health care. 

Don't miss this opportunity to hear from those who provide quality care for our veterans.

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a single issue organization advocating a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program. PNHP has 19,000 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 50 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.
