District 17 Healthcare Forum: The New York Health Act

March 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sponsored by NY Senate District 17 for Progress and
HEAL NY: Healthcare Equity Action League of New York

New York State can lead the nation in passing Guaranteed Healthcare for All!

Healthcare costs continue to rise while too many of us remain uninsured or underinsured, or are trapped in restrictive & confusing networks, preventing us from accessing the care we need.

Join us to learn about the New York Health Act: what it is, how it would benefit you & your community, and which legislators have the power to pass truly universal, single payer healthcare for all in New York State.
