AMPHS Hosted “Health Reform & You” Tabling Event at Sunset Park BPL

By: Adriana Cardenas

Academy of Medical and Public Health Services (AMPHS), a healthcare non-profit organization located in Brooklyn, NY, hosted a successful tabling event in partnership with Sunset Park Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library on October 13 & 19 called “Health Reform & You.”

AMPHS reviewed the basis of health reform for community members, and the alternatives that exist for those who are not covered by the Affordable Care Act, such as undocumented immigrants. Event materials were presented in English, Spanish, and Chinese both days, which allowed an active participation by the community.

AMPHS distributed literature and healthcare insurance options and gave relevant information to community members about all the services offered by AMPHS.

“Health Reform & You” was part of the myAMPHS Open Access Program, which aims to break down the lack of access to care for undocumented immigrants, striving to provide affordable health for all people as a basic human right.

“AMPHS believes every person should have the opportunity to get access to all preventative care services,” said Mon Yuck, Chief of Staff at AMPHS.

Undocumented immigrants may be eligible to receive Permanent Residence Under Color of law (PRUCOL) Status, New York State Medicaid for Emergency Care, Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) / Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation (COBRA) Act, NYC Health and Hospital Corporation (HHC) assistance, Pre-natal Care Assistance Program & Family Planning Extension Program, and free and low cost clinics. AMPHS will provide  public community workshops, seminars, individual consultations, prescription assistance, regular health screenings, and wellness check-up for all Open Access members.

AMPHS is expecting to hold future events to provide health services to those who my need it. If you’d like more information, please call (212) 256-9036 or email at
