Nielsen Not Happy With Health Care Bill [Buffalo News]

Published June 7, 2017

Nancy Nielsen, MD, PhD, was among many health care experts in Western New York who are opposed to the bill that House Republicans passed earlier this month that could cost New York State about $7 billion a year, while leaving thousands of state residents uninsured. "It's a bad bill for many reasons," said Nielsen, clinical professor of internal medicine and a former president of the American Medical Association, which also opposes the bill.
