Many health care personnel have expressed an interest in supporting the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement but are unsure how they can best participate. The goal of this guide is to synthesize some of the historical experience of physicians working with social movements as well as our own experience with working with Occupy Wall Street in order to provide practical guidance to health care professionals. Anyone can participate in OWS activities as a citizen.
