Health Care

Before serving in Congress, I earned a master’s degree in public health and spent 27 years working for the Virginia Department of Health. The COVID-19 outbreak underscores the importance of not only focusing on public health but also the need to fix our broken healthcare system. 

Every American has the right to access affordable and comprehensive health care coverage for themselves and their family but today, families are struggling to do so. I believe we must reform our healthcare system to provide quality, affordable healthcare to every American. We should focus on patient-provider centered reforms: I want to ensure you have the option to see a doctor of your choice and that you can keep our health insurance if you like it. Individuals and families should have the ability to make decisions for themselves based on what best fits their needs, wants, and budget - not what is dictated by the Government.
