When people have a voice - whether in the exam room, in the voting booth, or in civic and community life -- they tend to be healthier. We believe that the more people participate, particularly in communities that experience the greatest health and civic barriers, the healthier our democracy becomes.
In 2008, America's best clinicians, students and health professionals
formed a national nonpartisan network to help 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 and tools
for nonpartisan voter and civic engagement in health care settings.
- Educate health professionals to promote civic participation where they work
- Provide tools and resources for nonpartisan voter and civic engagement
- Connect health professionals with nonpartisan civic allies
- Understand and strengthen the relationship between health and democracy
