From Patients to Voters: Civic Engagement in Health Care

12:00-1:00 P.M.
Register Today
Health care is the single most important issue for most Americans, yet 51 million people forego a considerable amount of influence in shaping our nation’s health policy by not registering to vote. COVID-19 has made these issues painfully salient, with voter registration down by 70% in many states.
Join the Ash Center and the Center for Public Leadership in recognizing Civic Health Month and for a discussion on how healthcare workers are deepening civic engagement through voter empowerment, including how high levels of civic engagement can drive more equitable health outcomes.
Panelists include:
  • Dr. Deborah Turner, League of Women Voters
  • Prof. Parissa Ballard, Wake Forest University School of Medicine
  • Dr. Alister Martin, VotER
  • Dr. Liz McKenna, Johns Hopkins​​​​​ University
  • Lucas Buyon (Moderator), Harvard University
