PUBLIC FORUM — Residents can gain more information about the New York Health Act next month at an event, titled “Amherst Single Payer Public Forum.” The event will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8, at the Clearfield Library, 770 Hopkins Road.
The legislation is progressing through Albany, and a panel of experts will explain how public-funded, universal single-payer health insurance will impact every New York resident.
The panel of experts will include Kevin Ketchum, attorney; Brian Nowak, Town of Cheektowaga councilman; Joseph Testa, M.D., family medicine; Richard Clements, retired business executive; and Frances Ilozue, M.D., Rapha Family Medicine.
Attendees will be able to learn more about and understand the NY Health Act legislation, what it would change, whom it would benefit and how it would impact taxes. For more information, visit Campaign for NY Health at www.nyhcampaign.org, or search WNY Healthcare for All on Facebook.
