The Center for Medicare Advocacy mourns the loss and celebrates the extraordinary life of our friend, inspiring advocate, and activist, Ady Barkan. Ady was a brilliant lawyer and leader for fair and just health care as a human right. The Center has partnered closely with Ady and his incredible team at Be A Hero to help bring greater voice to inequities in healthcare and a stronger awareness about the systemic destruction of Medicare through increased and costly privatization. Our collective mission, to advance fair access to healthcare, has lost a dazzling, powerful voice that will be dearly missed. The Center will honor Ady by rededicating our fight for comprehensive Medicare and continuing our work with Be A Hero to strengthen his vision of equal access to quality health care for everyone.
