Turning the Tide: NYC Rally Success

Thanks to all of you who showed up to be a part of an amazing event, organized by the NYCforChange and HCAN coalition of over 80 grassroots organizations. We had amazing speakers -- including Congressmembers Yvette Clark, Carolyn Maloney, and Jerry Nadler, and our very own Jonathan Arend (Legislative Director - NY NPA) and Nina Agrawal (Director of Community Outreach - NY NPA and founder of NYCforChange). There were about 3000 supporters at the rally (estimated by NYPD). People loved the "prescriptions for health reform" (download it here)and were excited to see physicians and medical students at the rally in support of reform. Check out our media coverage!!!
