On February 4, 2016, as part of the Nationwide Day of Action to protest the TPP, 11 Boston TPP resisters passed out 750  flyers which focus on the medical and health effects of the TPP in the Longwood Medical Area, the home of 4 major medical centers. Receptiveness by the passersby was very positive.  We then placed flyers on cafeteria tables of the hospitals where patients and staff will read them as they eat dinner.
