Students for a National Health Program

Welcome to Students for a National Health Program, the student arm of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP). PNHP is a single-issue organization advocating for a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program with more than 19,000 members. We believe that a publicly funded, privately delivered universal health care system is necessary for us to provide high quality care to all patients. At Downstate, we educate our students on the benefits of a Single Payer System and advocate for this with our local and state representatives.

We also partner with other social justice minded groups at Downstate for events and actions.
