Thank You to Our Partners

Dear Friends, Partners, Colleagues, and Patients,

This week was truly historic. For the first time, doctors and community members stood together for health care reform. The lawmakers heard our voice and acted. Because of our work over the past year, nearly all Americans will gain access to guaranteed, quality, affordable care that improves our health.

We recognize that the law is not perfect and much work lies ahead. The first step is to call our elected officials and thank them. We also need to learn about the benefits of reform so that we can teach our patients, colleagues, friends, and families. The more we know, the better we can advocate for quality and affordable health care for all.

We look forward to continuing our work together in the pursuit of social justice.

In unity,
NPA NY Leadership

Victory in DC






300-strong. Today, March 22, 2010, we marched, rallied, and lobbied in DC to celebrate our victory, thank our Representatives, and press our Senators to get the job done. Dr. Manisha Sharma from NPA NY warmed up the crowd.

We owe our thanks to all our patients, community partners, elected officials, and colleagues on this momentous day.
