Featured Guest: Stella Safo

  • Sep 21, 2020

“Our policies are the way we deliver healthcare. If we don’t have a say in that, then what are we doing?”

Dr. Stella Safo is an HIV Primary Care physician & Assistant Professor of Medicine at Mt. Sinai Health System as well as a founding member of VoteHealth 2020. She joins us on National Voter Registration Day to discuss the barriers physicians & healthcare professionals face around talking about & activating around voting. We also jump into the remarkable work being done by VoteHealth 2020 and The Morning Report Initiative.
