What I will fight for...

  • I will fight for a ban restricting politicians, like our current Congressman, from accepting corporate money from Big Pharma
  • I will fight for high-quality universal, affordable health coverage for every American in all areas, including, full vision, dental and mental healthcare as well
  • I will fight for providing free marriage counseling for our people as a broken, unhappy marriage severely affects the health of our American families on all levels
  • I will fight for providing proper pre-natal care, regardless of income level
  • I will fight for requiring our healthcare system to reimburse medical professionals for a broader array of lifestyle and nutrition support, focused on preventing disease and/or addressing root causes
  • I will fight for increasing funding for our social workers and providing patients with more robust ongoing support from nutritionists, health coaches, therapists, mental health professionals, exercise specialists and other peripheral lifestyle treatment providers
  • I will fight for funding programs in all of our educational systems, pre-k through college, designed to teach nutrition and lifestyle skills to help cultivate long-term health
  • I will fight for restricting the marketing of overly-processed and sugary foods to our children
  • I will fight for stopping subsidies for agricultural production of unhealthy foods, like high-fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats, while simultaneously incentivizing and subsidizing farmers, ranchers and food companies for more healthy food production, making it more affordable and available
  • I will fight for shaping food policies using cutting-edge public health science instead of following the lead of lobbyists for industries whose sole focus is profit
  • I will fight for securing and expanding the role of the EPA and the FDA to keep toxins out of our environment and food supplies
  • I will fight for ways to lower stress in our district, societally and nationally, which could like at the very least, fighting for adding vacation time, pushing for legislation that ensures a manageable work week and implementing other legislation that would help to ensure the reduction of stress in our families and the American people
  • I will fight for legislation that limits hospitals’ abilities to overcharge its patients
  • I will fight for legislation that removes as much of the profit motive out of medicine as we can 
  • I will fight for legislation that invests more research into preventing disease and exposing the vulnerabilities in our system
  • I will fight for the importance and care of mental health care for all of our American people, by also finding non-pharmacological ways to treat mental health issues, taking all mental health issues as seriously as physical issues, and reducing the stigma of mental health illnesses, so that more will seek and receive treatment 
  • I will fight for legislation that treats drug addiction as a mental health issue, not as illegal activity, for only by de-criminalizing drugs can we break the backs of cartels and drug dealers, while getting addicts into recovery
