Mapping the Opposition: Who is Attacking Universal Health Care?
When: Tuesday, October 17th, 7:30PM – 9:00PM
Where: Mount Sinai Beth Israel Phillips Ambulatory Care Center, 10 Union Square East @ E 14th Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium
Featuring: Robert Galbraith, Researcher with LittleSis
Moderator: Roona Ray, MD, MPH, PNHP NY Metro Board Member
As the movement to win truly universal, public health care shows signs of success, we can expect the opposition to our effort — insurance and pharmaceutical corporations — to pour exorbitant amounts of money into the campaign to defeat us. Here in New York, almost a majority of the legislature is on record supporting the New York Health Act —the universal single-payer bill in New York State. Not surprisingly, groups like Reclaim New York are funding anti-New York Health Act mailers in key Senate districts to undermine the effort.
Join PNHP NY Metro for a discussion with public accountability organization, LittleSis, on how the opposition to truly universal, single-payer health care is mobilizing. Learn who funds these efforts, and how they profit from the status quo. In what is a David and Goliath battle, this free forum will address how we will build the movement to take on these corporations and win the right to health care.
All PNHP-NY Metro forums are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE

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 30 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.
