The Barnard-Columbia ISO has been working with a local coalition of health care advocates, Private Health Insurance Must Go! on a national campaign for truly free health care for everyone. Given the devastating effects of increased unemployment right now and the overwhelming amount of medical bill debt that many people currently hold, this campaign has never been so urgent.
