Our stories and our experiences can be powerful drivers for change, and the physician voice is an important tool to help make that change. Please join us on December 13th to learn more about how physicians and health care providers can combine their professional experiences and commitment to social change to build a movement for a healthier, safer world. The event will be followed by a reception where socially conscious health professionals can meet one another and work towards building a community of powerful physician storytellers.
