I’m Norbert Goldfield, MD, an internist and founder of Ask Nurses and Doctors. We need each other’s help to elect politicians who will make important health reform in areas such as drug pricing, health insurance coverage, and pro-choice one of their key priorities.
Getting out the vote is critical in the midterm elections and then in the run up to the 2024 presidential election.
It’s not difficult to help one another, and it is not time consuming – an hour a month of your time over the summer and fall, up to the midterm elections, is the way to start.
Contact me, and I will be in touch with you.
Here are three objectives – I and my colleagues will be soliciting your feedback on how to achieve them and to take your ideas on how to add to them:
- If you already use social media, you can tweet and retweet important thoughts and articles. That’s about 1 minute of your time every day. It helps us build a network among politicians and the public.
- Speak out at community meetings, like school boards or other appropriate venues on the healthcare issues that matter most to the public. Whether you are a healthcare professional or not, we can give you the materials you need to be effective.
- Reach out to local media with opinion pieces and you can sign on to these or create your own – we will help.
