#TenOne: National Actions for Medicare for All

MedicareforAll.jpg

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Medicare. As medical students, part of our mission is to ensure that everyone who needs care gets it. One way to achieve this goal is by improving the Medicare program and expanding it to cover all Americans.

We urge our fellow students and the public to join us for this #TenOne: Medicare-for-All National Day of Action on Thursday, Oct. 1, to bring national attention to our failing health care system and the need for single-payer health reform.

For more of the thinking behind the #TenOne initiative, including patient stories, please read these posts on SNaHP’s official blog by medical students Vanessa Van Doren and Bryant Shuey.
