Exercise Your Right to Vote!
Packard Health is partnering with VotER, an initiative that began at Massachusetts General Hospital by Emergency Medicine physician Alister Martin, MD, MPP.
The goal, to empower the patient population.
The initiative is a response to the staggering estimate of more than 50 million eligible people in the United States who are not registered to vote, as well as the number of patients who fall victim to failed public policy. Both groups are overwhelmingly one in the same with the top three categories being the low-income, people of color, and young Americans. Some of the policy issues hindering their health and care include homelessness, addiction, food insecurity, and lack of access to mental health care - exactly what is impacting many Packard Health patients.
The ability to register to vote using VotER is readily available by sending a text or using a simple link - vot-er.org/packardsocial.
Register by Friday, July 31st to request a mail-in ballot to safely avoid the August 4th Michigan primary crowds.
Encourage your loved ones to vote. While one vote feels insignificant, thousands (especially millions!) cannot be ignored. Let's make a change!
