“We owe it to our patients to do better. Every time I picture the couple leaving the pharmacy unvaccinated, I am reminded that true health care requires accountability and a willingness to challenge the status quo. That means challenging a “no” or “that’s too much work” rather than accepting it passively. If I could do it all over again, I would tell my 18-year-old past self that her voice is more powerful than she realizes. The same applies to any person in a similar situation who feels that their voice is not worth hearing. Our voices are our means to advocate for the patient. We must use them.
It took me over a year to find my own voice, but I’m finally raising it now.”
Ananya Raghavan is an undergraduate student.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Reflecting on my experience as a teenage health care worker during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
