The Clinician Action Network is a non-partisan grassroots organization that advocates for evidence-based health policies that put patients first.
Because health is inextricably linked to what happens in our communities, caring for our patients necessitates civic engagement, community participation, and more than ever, collective action.
We are a group of healthcare providers, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and dentists.
We are researchers and practitioners, specialists and generalists, and we care for patients in communities across America.
As healthcare professionals we have the privilege of being heard in our communities when others are not. We also have professional obligations to support our patients and defend them against harmful policies.
What brings us together now is a belief in the power of collective action, and the desire to defend the right to healthcare for all Americans.
That access to healthcare is a human right, and that equal opportunity to achieve health is fundamental for equal opportunity in life.
WHO WE ARE
That the politics of healthcare has direct impact on the health of Americans.
That a healthy America relies on clinicians to promote policies that help patients and stand together against policies that would do harm.
