I'm thrilled to announce that Citizen Physicians has officially founded our third medical school chapter at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine.
Pritzker's chapter is being spear headed by Michael Harries. Before starting medical school at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Michael attended Washington University in St. Louis where he was very involved with global health work. Following graduation he spent two years teaching high school physics as part of Teach For America in Chicago. Michael remains very active in the Chicago educational landscape. He believes civic engagement is incredibly important, especially to enact social change in the areas he is passionate in: education and healthcare.
As election season ramps up, students at our inaugural chapters at Brown, Harvard, and University of Chicago are looking forward to promote civic engagement activities on our campuses. If you are a healthcare student and would like to get information about organizing an event like a voter registration drive at your school, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
