As the Senate continues its efforts to pass health care reform that will devastate safety net programs and double the number of uninsured, there are many opportunities to make your voice heard to save health care now. Read on for more information.


Town Hall on Inequality in Access to Care 

When: 6/20, 6PM 
Where: Julia de Burgos Latino Cultural Center (1680 Lexington Ave between 105th and 106th Streets). 

Mount Sinai's outpatient centers and some inpatient units offer different care to patients based on their insurance. Patients with Medicaid are primarily seen in residents' clinics, whereas patients with private insurance are directed to Mount Sinai's private faculty practices. The quality of care offered in these clinics, including wait times, continuity, and access to resources, differs substantially. Because people of color constitute the majority of Medicaid enrollment in NYC, segregation of patients on the basis of insurance status functions as de facto segregation by race. 
We believe that Mount Sinai's patients, nurses, trainees, and doctors deserve a better system. Join us to discuss the current state of segregated care at Mount Sinai and how we can move toward a more equitable system. 

Manhattan Young Dems Forum: The Ultimate #Resistance in Healthcare: The New York Health Act

When: 6/21, 7PM
"The current healthcare system is brimming with injustice and plagued with depressing/discouraging obstacles. Given this reality, and the national attacks on the Affordable Care Act, we must move New York State in the right direction. This means passing the New York Health Act, which will bring universal and truly affordable healthcare to our state. In this talk, we will discuss how this single-payer bill will work and share strategies for its passage."

Speaker: Daniel Neghassi, MD, Family Physician, Center for Family and Community Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center
Board Member, Physicians for a National Health Program – New York Metro Chapter.

24 Hour Vigil to Save Our Care @ Trump Hotel

Start:    Wed 6/21 @ 5PM 
Thurs 6/22 @ 5PM
Trump International Hotel, Columbus Circle (1 Central Park West, New York, NY 10023)

RSVP on Facebook 

"The Senate will likely vote on its version of Trumpcare next week. While the actual bill is a secret, leaks show that it is as bad as the House version, which stripped health insurance from 24 million people. The Senate version tweaks things only slightly - for example, it still includes major cuts to Medicaid, but they take a little longer to occur. Join us in a 24-hour vigil to try to prevent this horrible bill from passing. Bring candles and your healthcare stories. Spread the word to every person and organization you know! Religious leaders are welcome to speak."

Stand Up Schumer: Withhold Consent 'til AHCA has Public Hearings

When: Thurs 6/22, 5PM - 6PM
780 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10017-2003

Join the Indivisible State-wide day of action to stop TrumpCare. NY Indivisible groups across the state will be hosting sit-ins to demand Senator Schumer does more: (1) Resist through procedure by withholding consent and (2) Filibuster by amendment until full and transparent hearings are held on the Senate Healthcare Bill.

NYC PRIDE: March with the Resistance Contingent! 

At this year's PRIDE Parade PNHP has been invited to kick off the march with the Resistance Contingent! We hope you will join us -- all are welcome -- you do not have to be a physician.

Where: 41st Street between Park & Madison
 Sunday 6/25, 10AM
Please note: You must be at the staging area between 10:00AM and 10:15AM. You will not be able to enter before or after that time slot.

We encourage physicians to wear your white coats, and for others to bring signs about single payer healthcare, Medicare for All, or the New York Health Act—the only way to truly protect ourselves from a free market health care system is to win guaranteed health care for all!

Please let us know you'll be attending by signing up here
