Committee of Interns and Residents/SEIU Healthcare

 

Resident leaders have defined CIR’s political advocacy mission as fighting for an issue agenda under the banner “Health Justice for All."

Every day, resident physicians treat patients whose health has been compromised by a system that costs too much and leaves too many behind. The United States provides some with the high quality care they want whenever they want it, but that luxury too often comes at the expense of the most vulnerable members of society having access to the critical care they need when they need it. For far too many, the neighborhood that you live in, the amount of money that you make, your race, your gender, your sexual orientation, or your birthplace impacts your health and wellbeing far more than the choices you make or any treatment we can prescribe.

You, too, can be a CIR Leader in Health Justice! Let us know how you'd like to participate in CIR's work to create a more
just health system.
