A rally in response to possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act was held on the steps of San Francisco City Hall on January 15, 2017. Ashley McMullen, R2, spoke about her experiences as a resident physician at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where we provide care to people most vulnerable to disruptions in health care coverage. UCSF residents, physicians, health care providers from throughout the city and others gathered to rally against repeal of the ACA and energize the community around continued action toward this cause. The event was organized by Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, who also invited a number of patients directly impacted by the ACA to address the rally participants and call for its protection. Read more here.
