Guest: Michelle S. Gittler, M.D.
Host: Jeffrey S. Brault, D.O. (@JeffBrault)
"Anything that is going to impact the health of the people I serve should be looked at seriously." Michelle S. Gittler, M.D., outlines the ways in which doctors can, and should, get involved in large-scale advocacy for their patients. She makes the argument for why advocacy should be taught as a core competency in medical school and how to teach it to future physicians.
