NY Metro Chapter Membership Drive
For the month of October, if you join or renew your membership with Physicians for a National Health Program, 100% of your dues will be given to the NY Metro Chapter to support our work right here in New York. Normally, it's a 50/50 split, so this is a great opportunity to support the NY Metro Chapter. All are welcome to join; you don't need to be a physician. We have nurses, public health professionals, social workers and concerned people who support single-payer health care as members of our organization.
If you join during the membership drive, you'll get this great union-made, Healthcare Is A Human Right tote bag!

Puerto Rico’s Fight for Single Payer Health Care
Speaker: Sarah Huertas, MD, MPH, PNHP Puerto Rico Chapter
Discussant: Annette Gaudino, Coordinator, Campaign for NY Health
October 20th, 7:30PM, Phillips Ambulatory Care Center - Mount Sinai Beth Israel, 10 Union Sq E, 2nd Floor Auditorium
What can we learn from Puerto Rico’s fight to win single-payer health care? In 2015, with the support of a broad coalition, a bill passed the Puerto Rican Assembly to study health care reforms and identify what is best for Puerto Rico’s people. Activists believe the current economic conditions on the island have created an opening to reach people with the message of universal, single-payer health care as a way out of their crisis.
Come learn about the bill and what it means for the effort to win universal, single payer health care.
All PNHP NY Metro events are FREE and open to the public.
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 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.
