HealthBegins is working with allies to help get out the vote this fall. We believe voting is a critically important way to shape the distribution of power and resources that impact health—i.e., the structural determinants of health inequity.
This webinar, which we’re proud to co-sponsor with VoteHealth2020, will be hosted by Don Berwick and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha and will focus on concrete examples and tools that healthcare professionals can use to support safe voting this fall.
