VOTE — Get Registered & Help Others Register!
Civic engagement is a vital component of our patients’ health and our role as practitioners. Civic engagement allows us to address key social determinants of health that impact our communities’ mortality, quality of life and overall vitality.
Double Check Your Voter Registration
Physicians have historically not been active voters, participating at a rate lower than that of the general population. It’s time to change that. Legislative decisions impact our patients and our ability to care for them. That is why AMWA has partnered with the Civic Health Alliance and Vot-ER to promote voter engagement and provide information for our members and allies.
Check out the resources below and encourage your colleagues and patients to Register and Make a Plan to Vote!
