Local Panelists:

Peggy Chase R.N., Onondaga County Legislature, volunteer Poverello Free Clinic

Following the speakers, there will be a time for public comment, testimony, and discussion. State elected officials have been invited.

 

We'll have information, answer questions and provide organizing information for those who want to work with our state legislature to pass the New York Health Act. 98% of New Yorkers would pay less on this plan. Come and be a part of the discussion to cover all New Yorkers with affordable health care.

Board certified in internal medicine as well as hospice and palliative care medicine, Dr. Coates graduated from the Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons.
