National Summit of Clinicians for Healthcare Justice a Success Because of Your Commitment to Healthcare Justice
Thank you to our attendees, sponsors, and speakers. Our event was a success because of your commitment to healthcare justice. Our efforts will not stop here. It is our duty to go beyond the event and become lifelong advocates.
"Dr. Murray was a phenomenal speaker and gave this conference the fire that it needed on day two. Her observations and criticisms were a call for change and a charge to not wait, but make it happen. As a student, I spend a lot of time feeling frustrated that I have to focus so much time getting my professional skills ready, and I feel paralyzed by not having more time and energy to work in policy and reduce the inequities that fill our world and my patients experiences. Dr. Murray's presentation pushed me to want to do it all, and to know that because she will has stepped out in front already, I can." -Summit attendee.
In the following days we will be putting together a number of video, audio and written papers from the summit. Use these resources to inspire, organize and take action in your area.
