SFMMS Supports Civic Health Month



Civic Health Month is here! The San Francisco Marin Medical Society is proud to be part of this coalition of over 50 healthcare and voter registration organizations and more than 12,000 frontline providers working to build a healthier and more inclusive American democracy.

Voting has become a major public health issue, and now more than ever before, we need to give every American a voice in shaping health policy and empower them to do so in a safe and healthy way.  

 

Making this effort succeed will require participation from all of us. Here are some ways you can get involved:
