As Clinicians, you have a unique lens and daily witness the host of forces and factors that threaten the health and well-being of the individuals and communities you serve.  While your voices are trusted and powerfully capable of shaping change, many clinicians engage in advocacy far too infrequently.  Never has the need for effective physician advocacy been greater!  This webinar was designed to help you, as practicing clinicians, to re-frame the challenges you see in your daily practice as opportunities for advocacy and action.
