186 – Rock the vote – You and your patient’s life depends on it
What’s good everyone,
Voting is at the root of our democracy. The stakes of this election can give someone heartburn (I got my Zantac ready)! Lucky enough, we got a group of medical professionals making it easy for doctors and patients to register to vote. Their organization is called Vote Health 2020 and they are nonpartisan. Dr. Stella Safo, who is a cofounder, comes on the hotseat to talk about what this organization is doing and how you can take action.
Dr. Stella Safo is a HIV primary care physician with experience in clinical transformation and healthcare redesign within Mount Sinai Health System and Premier Inc, where she respectively serves as an Assistant Professor and Strategic Advisor. Dr. Safo received her medical education from Harvard Medical School and a masters degree in public health with a focus on global health at the Harvard School of Public Health; she completed a residency in Primary Care and Social Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York followed by an HIV fellowship from the HIV Medical Association. Her research areas focus on qualitative analyses of healthcare delivery to vulnerable populations around the world.
