The Hidden Truths about Health Care Reform Forum
Friday, Oct 30 
7:30 pm

Lecture Center 102, SUNY New Paltz Campus 
Free and open to the public

Dr. Andy Coates, national spokesperson for Physicians for a National Health Plan (PNHP), will address the current health care crises. He will present: How we have reached the current crises in health care; assess current legislative health reform proposals; the media blackout on single payer/medicare-for-all, and how health care reform is integrating with elections reform. His presentation will be followed by an interactive Q&A session.

"There is much confusion and misunderstanding about bills offered in the House and Senate, as well as the differences between single payer and the public option," says Dr. Coates, a practicing physician and professor of medicine and psychiatry at Albany Medical College. "PNHP will be conducting educational forums much like the one at SUNY throughout New York state in the months ahead."

Dr. Andy Coates will be leading a discussion on how the US can meet the global crisis, and resist the worldwide move to privatize, market, and commodify Healthcare.

Andrew D. Coates, MD is a member of the national board of directors of Physicians for a National Health Program and the secretary of the Capital District (NY) chapter of PNHP.  He practices medicine in Albany, NY, where he is assistant professor of medicine and psychiatry at Albany Medical College.
