The DC 37 Healthcare Education Activist Team (HEAT) urges NYC Health+ Hospitals workers, public health advocates and community residents to attend and speak out at the H+H annual meetings this spring.
The meetings will be held on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. at H+H sites in each borough. (See list below.)
Voice your concerns about the impact the New York State budget will have on the day-to-day operations of public hospitals and clinics in your community. At these meetings, activists can express themselves regarding the Trump administration’s threats to cut federal aid, Medicaid and change Affordable Health Care law.
Find out how state and federal budgets will affect patients, services and your community. Make your voice heard.
