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.
