UNAC/UHCP President Denise Duncan, RN, issued the following statement in response to Speaker Anthony Rendon’s efforts to push for Universal Health Care Coverage in California:

“The United Nurses Associations of California/Union of Health Care Professionals is proud to support Speaker Anthony Rendon’s efforts to deliver universal healthcare to Californians by engaging legislators and stakeholders in a comprehensive legislative process to understand the methods that can be taken to address this complex issue. We stand with Speaker Rendon and are committed to partnering together to help achieve this goal. It has always been UNAC/UHCP’s goal to achieve health care coverage for all, and we are in a unique position to close the 9 percent uninsured gap in California. We have the momentum and right leadership to get this done and we are happy California is continuing to lead against President Trump’s efforts to dismantle our health care system.”
