moral-march-062Message from Viviana Martinez-Bianchi, Exco Member WONCA World

I was honored to represent the “white coats” today with this speech at the Moral March on Raleigh, an annual civil rights protest in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was an experience I will never forget. To speak from my heart about the health and healthcare needs of our communities. I was inspired by the presence of the large number of medical students and PA students who attended the march today, plus a large number of faculty, residents, and community clinicians. And more importantly inspired by the diverse humanity who passionately attended the march. 

Someone taped my speech, linked below, it is only missing my introduction. At my 5th line, I choked up thinking about the 80,000 people I could see from the stage, still marching in, the mall filled with people all the way from the Old Capitol to the Center for performing arts.  

Thankful to Perri Morgan and the organizers of HKonJ March in Raleigh for having given me the opportunity  to speak.
