“Now is the time for Mayoral candidates to voice their vision for New York’s public health system and propose their plans for how to reduce existing health disparities in our city, “ said Chung-Wha Hong, Executive Director of the New York Immigration Coalition. “A healthy New York requires a strong health safety net and equal access to quality health care for all New Yorkers, regardless of race, immigration status, language spoken, diagnosis, or ability to pay. As we move forward with implementation of federal health reform, the city’s role in meeting the needs of immigrants and others who will face barriers to accessing care will be more important than ever. We need leadership from the next Mayor to ensure a healthy New York by pledging to care for all of our city’s residents.”
