My motivation to be a physician

Advocacy is an integral part of Dr. McHugh's motivation to be a physician, and she has inspired many others along the way. By being a visible advocate for reproductive rights and health equity, her reach as a physician extends far beyond the individual patient in the exam room. 

​Education in advocacy is severely lacking and sometimes non-existent in medical training. 

Dr. McHugh developed and implemented a Healthcare Advocacy Curriculum for her trainees, which was wildly successful both in recruitment as well as advocacy output from learners. 

​Dr. McHugh believes that we are smarter, stronger, and better when we work together. Click below to join trainings and get connected.
