National Physicians Alliance

Committed to Advancing the Core Values of the Medical Profession:

Service, Integrity, and Advocacy



Civic Engagement


  • reflects and gives life to our society’s most important values: opportunity, fairness, justice, equity, and democracy
  • is shaped by certain conditions, such as the health care we receive and where we live, work, eat, learn, and play
  • depends on having the opportunity and ability to influence these conditions

Simply put, people who have a voice–whether in the exam room, in the voting booth, or in civic and community life–tend to be healthier.   And the more voices there are, the healthier our democracy becomes.  This is Rx: Democracy.

The NPA is committed to advancing the civic engagement of physicians and patients through leadership development, coalition building, and voter education.

The NPA is a founding member of Rx Democracy, a national nonpartisan network of more than 18 national and regional groups representing America’s best clinicians, health professionals and students. Together with concerned citizens’ groups, this network helps patients and those who care for them to have a voice in their health care and their community.  We partner with civic organizations to provide opportunities for nonpartisan voter and civic engagement in health care settings and beyond.

If you believe that voting and civic participation are healthy activities, join our Rx: Democracy network to make sure everyone has the tools and information they need for a healthy democracy.
