"House Calls for Health Care"
Mila Chia, a registered nurse, advocates for health care reform.
Clad in green hospital scrubs emblazoned with the words "House Calls for Health Care" and the AFSCME logo, nurses united with Council 4 members to reiterate the need for real health care reform with a robust public option to compete against insurance profiteers.
Two AFSCME nurses from New Jersey, Anne Berkowitz and Mila Chia, traveled to New Britain Oct. 17 for a press conference at Council 4, after which they hit the streets to go door-to-door for health care reform.
“We need real reform that keeps my patients’ health in the hands of their nurses and doctors, and not their insurance companies,” Chia said during the press conference
Local 1303-94 member Peter Cianciola, middle row, third from left, talks about problems with access to health care.
