Charmaine Ruddock, Project Director, Bronx Health REACH

Moderator: Daniel Lugassy, MD, Physicians for a National Health Program

 

Access to health care in New York City is highly unequal. Discrimination by race, ethnicity, and class is endemic. Roosa Tikkanen will present her recent studies of discriminatory access to New York’s highly-rated academic medical centers, along with her demonstration of the failure of the State’s Indigent Care Pool to remedy the inequity. Dr. Danny Lugassy, a member of our Chapter Board, and others who work in NYC hospitals, will describe what it’s like to work in this kind of unequal health care system – and what we should do about it.

Read the study abstract and press release.

*The Lukomnik Forum Series: This forum is the sixteenth sponsored by the Joanne Lukomnik Fund for Health Care Reform. Joanne, who died at the age of 51 in 1998, served as medical director and consultant to community health centers in New York City and was one of the founders of PNHP. The Lukomnik Fund was created to continue her activism toward the kind of compassionate health care she fought for and that we believe is a basic human right.
