We had a wonderful gala on June 13, honoring champions dedicated to health justice. This year’s honorees included Martha Livingston,Ph.D., Senator Gustavo Rivera, and the Residency Program in Social Medicine at Montefiore. Just two weeks earlier, for the first time ever, the New York State Senate Health Committee held an official public hearing on the “New York Health Act” (NYHA), a bill to create a fully-public universal healthcare program covering all New York residents. It was ideal to celebrate this milestone with our guests and honorees - so many of whom helped contribute to this latest victory for our healthcare for all movement.

    Leadership Training: Healthcare Storytelling


    The Coronavirus pandemic reveals the weaknesses of the U.S. healthcare system, especially the reliance on employer-sponsored health plans. Sharing our stories is a critical piece of advocating for the systemic changes that are necessary in order to guarantee our right to healthcare. Join Physicians for a National Health Program NY Metro and Campaign for NY Health for a Virtual Leadership Training on Healthcare Storytelling. RSVP HERE to reserve your spot.

    During the training, participants will:

    • discuss their experiences accessing healthcare, before and during the Coronavirus crisis;
    • practice healthcare storytelling best practices; and
    • learn about opportunities to share their healthcare stories in advocacy for universal healthcare.

    The training lasts approximately 2 hours and will be conducted using Zoom video conference.

    Through this training, we seek to develop the advocacy leadership of New Yorkers most impacted by inequities in healthcare by providing trainings on story-based advocacy and universal coverage principles. Please share this invitation with interested community members who are passionate about healthcare justice. 

    Organized with support from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York and the New York Community Trust.

    Space is limited! Please RSVP HERE to reserve your spot. You will receive a confirmation email with details for joining the training.
