Physicians for a National Health Program
America’s system of providing health care to its citizens is at a tipping point. For the first time in seventy years political, economic, and technological forces are presenting a real opportunity to reform the system.
We are a chapter of the national Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP). Formed in 1986, for over 25 years PNHP has advocated for and lobbied to restore the physician-patient relationship by limiting outside influences. We support Medicare For All.
In 2022, PNHP successfully led a movement against the expansion of private equity firms into Medicare. In June 2023, our medical student members passed a resolution to lobby the American Medical Association to adopt a policy advocating for a health system that provides care without obstacles for everyone, a reversal of a seventy-year opposition.
