188 – Should “Are you registered to vote” be apart of patients’ social history?

What’s good everyone!!

We’re going to continue the voter registration conversation because it’s very important. Today you’ll be hearing from Dr. Alister Martin, an ER physician at Massachusetts General Hospital, who started the organization VotER. VotER believes that more voices build better systems and they are accomplishing this by making it easier for medical professionals and their patients to register to vote.

You’ll also hear about what it’s like to build an organization like this from the ground up. Other things you’ll learn in this episode:

  • How patients can change the dynamics of healthcare
  • How Dr. Alister has been able to get such a large patient and hospital buy-in
  • The importance of civic engagement
  • How he built the intricate network/infrastructure of VotER
  • How VotER has been able to “gamify” voter registration with medical professionals.
