CHAMPION SOCIAL CHANGE
While improving outcomes for our patients is likely the primary goal of any healthcare provider, when it comes to environmental health, change must occur on the governmental and societal level. Find out what the main issues are facing your community, whether it be air pollution, pesticide exposure or unsafe working conditions, and find organizations you can partner with to enact change. As a healthcare provider, you may be a valuable resource to community organizations due to your knowledge and expertise as well as your ability to "feel the pulse" of current health concerns and trends. Partner with organizations that are making positive change in the community and offer you knowledge as a valuable community resource.
