REPORT FROM OUR MAY MEETING ON
NATIONAL SINGLE PAYER HEALTH PLAN

We were honored to have Dr. Bruce Trigg, a long time advocate for a single payer health care plan, who is a leader in Physicians for a National Health Care Plan (http://www.pnhp.org/), and 5 UNM medical students with Students for a National Health Care Plan (http://student.pnhp.org/) at our May 11 meeting.

Dr. Trigg gave an overview of how the plan will work, and current US health care spending, which is the highest in the world, and still leaves people uninsured and without access.

The students addressed myths and misinformation about single payer. The PDA audience was impressed by the empathy, knowledge, commitment, and courage of these students, who are speaking out about the need to address the health care crisis that they see in their practice.

Dr. Trigg’s advocacy for single payer has been consistent and persistent throughout our community and nation-wide. He and the students are hoping to bring their message to other groups. Please email pdacnm@gmail.com if you would like to get in touch with them for more information or a presentation to your group.
