Everyone in New York deserves access to safe, quality healthcare.
But we’re still a long way from that goal.

Join patients and caregivers to discuss:

• The history of healthcare activism in the Bronx
• The impact of segregated care based on ability to pay
• What the Affordable Care Act means for uninsured populations and how it may affect healthcare disparities
• What we can do to build a movement to win safe staffing and single payer in New York

Speakers:

• Sis. Cleo Silvers, Long-time community and labor organizer, current healthcare outreach worker
• Charmaine Ruddock, Project Director, Bronx Health REACH
• Sean Petty, RN, New York State Nurses Association Board of Directors
• Dr. Matthew Anderson, MD, MSc, Montefiore Medical Center Department of Family and Social Medicine, Physicians for a National Health Program NY Metro
