BOCA RATON, Fla. — Health care workers, including doctors and nurses, held signs and waved as cars passed them Saturday on the corner of Florida Atlantic University and Spanish River Boulevard.

The event was part of "National Day for Healthcare" happening around the U.S. in support of the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris campaign and to raise awareness for early voting.

Dr. Dawn Sterling said health care workers are still struggling because of the current administration's lack of support for their profession.

"The coronavirus has been absolutely mismanaged," she said. "It's a matter of getting out to vote in support of science, in support of the front line workers, but also for everybody to understand that voting is the only way that you have a voice."
