With the country spending 16% of its GDP on health care and 47 million Americans still uninsured, everyone agrees that change is necessary. The New York Medical College chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) recognizes these plan to "get the conversation started". With the collaboration of NYMC's chapters of AMA,AMSA, Improve Health Care, and the Family Medicine Interest Group and School of Public Health, a lecture series has been piloted this year with the central goal of educating students and raising awareness on campus about the crippled state of our current health care system. We believe that the lecture series will provide a solid platform for discussions on health care policy and reform.
