Tennessee is currently facing several major health care issues. The opioid crisis, care for those with mental health issues, caring for our elderly, children's health, the costs related to healthcare, and access to healthcare and health insurance. I work in healthcare and see the problems that we all face. I will work to find solutions and I will support legislation that will improve our healthcare and access to that healthcare.

In our state, healthcare is not just a policy issue; it's a matter of life and dignity. I believe that every person, in every corner of our district, deserves access to quality, affordable healthcare.

1. Accessible Healthcare:

  • I will fight tirelessly to ensure that healthcare is accessible to all, not just a privilege for the few. It's time for our state to lead the way in making sure everyone has a path to affordable healthcare.

2. Affordable Care:

  • I understand the financial burden that healthcare costs place on families. I'll work tirelessly to find ways that will reduce healthcare costs, lower prescription drug prices, and make sure that medical bills don't force anyone into bankruptcy.

3. Quality and Equity:

  • Healthcare should be about quality, not just quantity. I'm committed to addressing disparities in healthcare access and outcomes. No one should suffer because of their zip code, race, or income.

4. Mental Health and Wellness:

  • Mental health is just as important as physical health. I will advocate for improved mental healthcare services, reducing stigma, and providing support to those in need.

5. Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions:

  • I pledge to protect individuals with pre-existing conditions. Healthcare should never discriminate against those who need it most.

6. Strengthening Community Health:

  • Our community's health is our strength. I will work to invest in local clinics, improve public health initiatives, and ensure that our communities are resilient and healthy.

7. Listening to You:

  • I'm not just here to talk; I'm here to listen. Your stories, experiences, and concerns about healthcare matter. Together, we will shape policies that reflect our shared values.

8. Bipartisan Solutions:

  • I believe in finding common ground and working across the aisle to deliver results. Healthcare is a non-partisan issue, and I'm committed to finding bipartisan solutions that work for all.

9. Accountability and Transparency:

  • Transparency in healthcare is essential. I will push for accountability in our healthcare system and ensure that your tax dollars are used efficiently and effectively.

Together, we can build a healthcare system that leaves no one behind, ensures you have the care you need when you need it, and invests in the health and future of our communities.
