It's Time to Add Your Voice

Since 1987 Physicians for a National Health Program has advocated for reform in the U.S. health care system. A large part of our work involves educating health professionals, and others, about the benefits of a single-payer system - including fewer administrative costs and providing comprehensive health insurance for all residents of the United States.

PNHP Western Washington Changed its name to PNHP Washington

Our PNHP Western Washington Board decided to change our name to PNHP Washington to reflect the fact that we have lots of PNHP members from around the state, many of whom have tuned in to recent monthly meetings. Also, the new medical school in Spokane will have a SNaHP chapter. With the ability to livestream our meetings, after pandemic restrictions, we can choose to have them in different locations around the state. Everyone can participate.

It may takes some time to make the changes in our links so we'll try to keep all functional for a while

PNHPWW April 23rd Meeting
7:00pm via ZOOM

"Rural Health Care and Medicare for All"

Kevin Walsh, MD

Health care in rural areas has suffered over the past many years as economic interests have concentrated and consolidated health care resources in more lucrative urban areas. Rural hospitals have shut down, patients have to travel long distances to receive care, etc. Medicare for All, with global budgets and everyone covered financially, would go a long way to eliminating these inequities.

Dr. Kevin Walsh graduated from University of Washington School Of Medicine in 1982 and did his Family Medicine residency at Colorado U in Denver. He has worked in the public sector for over 30 years;  at the Indian Health Service Clinic in Chinle, AZ,  the Farm Workers Clinic in Toppenish, WA, Eastside CHC in Bellevue and most recently in the Community Health Clinic of Central Washington in Ellensburg.  He is a strong voice for the care of the underserved.

In preparation for the meeting, you can look at PNHP's Kitchen TableCampaign on Rural Health resources here
