How (And Why) You Should Write a Op-Ed

I always enjoy speaking to young physicians/physicians-in-training. I had the pleasure of speaking at UIC to a group of M2 students on the importance of making their voices heard, and using writing to advocate for important issues.  It was a great afternoon with enthusiastic and passionate young students.
