How to begin to participate in the campaign?


Write down your mission and see how it aligns with the campaign. For instance, Dr. Laurel Ries, president of the Minnesota Medical Association said at our March 11 kick-off: “We are expecting one in three rural physicians to retire in the next five years. And part of that is being driven by rancor or burnout. Nobody's out there saying we should be less healthy. We all want to be healthy. We have different strategies for how to get there. But health is a common goal.”
