NYSNA is co-sponoring a new symposium presented by the Business and Labor Coalition of New York (BALCONY). “The Status of Health Care Reform” is being presented on Friday, March 26 from 8:00 -11:00 AM. The presentation will feature a coalition of advocacy, union, and business groups in a lively discussion. Keynote speaker for the symposium will be Health and Human Services Department Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Details and registration information can be found on the BALCONY website.
The American Nurses Association (ANA) new “Let’s Get It Done!” petition urges action by Congress on healthcare reform. While the petition does not advocate for one healthcare reform proposal over the other, it encourages people to help build momentum for meaningful reform.
We hope that NYSNA members will consider helping us make this petition a strong “viral” campaign through social media including Facebook and Twitter.
Individuals with Facebook pages can dedicate your status to the petition. The language we suggest is: “Our health care system is on life support and American patients are paying the price. Sign the “Let’s Get It Done!” petition today at www.rnaction.org/getitdone.” Those with Twitter feeds can either “retweet” ANA’s tweet on the petition or tweet: “Don’t let patient pay the price for delay. Sign the “Let’s Get it Done!” petition today at www.rnaction.org/getitdone."
