2016 Leadership TrainingThe PNHP Leadership Training is for health professional advocates who are looking to take a leadership role in the grassroots movement for single payer.

The Leadership Training is an organizing training that focuses on developing specific advocacy skills in media, chapter development, health policy, and public education.

The faculty are nationally known researchers, teachers and leaders present data making the case for national health insurance and answer the "tough questions" of opponents. Small group and plenary sessions provide the opportunity for in-depth discussion of the material and extensive personal attention.

Most participants are physicians or physicians-in-training; a select few non-physician allied health professionals also participate.


At the end of this course, participants will be equipped to:

  • Utilize PNHP resources to develop and present a grand rounds or single-payer presentation aimed towards a health professional or community audience
  • Create a media strategy that includes meaningful engagement in social media platforms
  • Leverage grassroots power to win support for single payer from elected officials
  • Organize a chapter of PNHP and learn to effectively partner with community and student organizations
  • Plan successful training events in your city to develop new local leaders
