This spring, medical and health professional students from across the U.S. will gather in Philadelphia to learn more about single payer, network with colleagues, and develop the vital advocacy skills they will need to help grow our movement.

The business case for single payer

Business owner Richard Master knows firsthand how the dysfunctional U.S. health care system punishes not only patients, but also employers who are forced to spend more and more to insure their workers. His documentary, "Fix It," makes a strong business case for addressing this festering problem, and includes interviews with many PNHP members. A trailer for the film can be accessed above, or you can view the full version for free by visiting the "Fix It" website.

Stop Tom Price

Rep. Tom Price – a man of extreme views – has been nominated to head the Dept. of Health and Human Services. Price’s preferred policies threaten Medicare and Medicaid, and would diminish the already substandard quality of private insurance. We urge you to call your senators today at (202) 224-3121 and voice your opposition to this disastrous pick. For more information, click here.
