Doctors For Change



Doctors for Change works to increase access to care and improve the health of all Houstonians and all Texans through research, education, collaboration, and advocacy.




The focus of DFC is to make Houston and Texas healthier by ensuring that all persons have access to high quality health care and that all communities have the resources they need to promote mental and physical wellbeing. We believe that health care should be universal, affordable, accessible, accountable, comprehensive, and just.

Doctors For Change believes that healthcare providers have a unique ability and responsibility to advocate with their patients for improvements to the healthcare system. While many organizations work to address issues like food insecurity and access to care, few have tackled these issues by bringing the medical provider into the public health and policy arena. DFC serves as an educational resource and forum in which healthcare providers, students, and community members can advocate locally and statewide.
