Every day it is becoming more clear that healthcare is heavily influenced by policies and politics. Our ability to care for our patients is being determined not just in the hospital or in the home, but also on the Hill. We advocate for our patients with our letters, our phone calls, and our marches.
But in the fight for healthcare, the most powerful tool we have is our vote.
That is why we have joined the Med Out the Vote campaign, an initiative by the American Medical Student Association in partnership with Citizen Physicians. We are calling our members to action, to join with healthcare providers and providers-in-training across the country, to make this pledge to themselves and to their patients: a pledge to vote, a pledge to help others vote, and a pledge to get out the vote.
Join the movement to #MedOuttheVote.
Make your pledge at www.medoutthevote.org, and Med Out the Vote will help you keep it.
