We aim to make voting and civic participation accessible to all — particularly those underserved by the healthcare system. Civic Health Month is a nationwide celebration held each August to showcase the strengthening relationship between health care, healthy communities, and civic participation.
Civic Health Month is a nonpartisan effort. Our goal is to increase civic engagement among all patients and providers because much of our healthcare system and healthcare experiences are determined by the policies our elected officials implement. We are nonpartisan because we believe in a truly democratic process and aspire towards an American democracy that is inclusive to all. Civic Health Month does not support or oppose any political party or candidate for office, nor do we take any positions on specific policy issues. Rather, we hope that everyone takes it upon themselves to be politically engaged and informed so that they can vote for those that best represent their interests. Any and all views expressed by individuals or partners are their own and do not constitute the views or position of Civic Health Month as a whole.
