It’s important to see beyond what we learn in the classroom and understand the disconnect between who gets to make decisions and who is actually impacted by them. Our goal at H-STAT is to teach students how to be that bridge and to be advocates for their patients and their communities.
Help us speak up about this issue! The vigil will take place outside of the main Grady Hospital entrance (at Gilmer St) on Monday, October 26th at 6:30 pm. The event will include several speakers, including Dr. Liz Frye, Dr. Maura George, George Chidi, Laura Colbert, and some uninsured patients.
