    Student Forum 2017

    You're Invited to PNHP NY Metro's Annual Student Forum 

    Health Activism on Campus: 1960s and 2017


    Featured Speakers:

    Merlin Chowkwanyun, PhD: Center for the History and Ethics of Public Health at the Mailman School of Public Health

    To kick off the academic year, join PNHP NY Metro and student leaders from medical and public health schools across the city for a presentation with Professor Merlin Chowkwanyun on the history of health activism on campus during the 1960s and 70s. 

    The student arm of PNHP—Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP)—has grown to over 50 chapters nationwide with 8 chapters in the NY Metro area.  The presentation will be followed by reports from student leaders about the growth of the student movement for single payer health care and tactics that unite students to oppose cuts to our current health care system, while pushing for improved Medicare for All.

    Help spread the word on Facebook or download the flyer.

    After the event, join students for "SNaHPPY" hour at a local bar [TBD].
