“The is probably the most precious 2 minutes you can spend on completing your Hippocratic Oath”
Dr. Ankita Sagar is Assistant Professor and Director of Ambulatory Quality at Hofstra-Northwell who has had a profound impact on my mindset around physicians registering to vote. We discuss her advocacy in encouraging physicians and medical students to register, the barriers that have previously existed, and how and where to go to get registered. Really inspirational and motivating stuff!
