C4PC ENDORSES MARTHA SHAFER FOR NC HOUSE DISTRICT 62

Baltimore, MD; April 19, 2018 - Clinicians for Progressive Care is excited to announce our endorsement of Martha Shafer for North Carolina House District 62. Martha has spent her career working in non-profit health care and understands how corporate greed and the headlong race for profit hurt vulnerable residents of the Tar Heel State.

Martha received her bachelor's degree from Furman University and a master's in health administration at Duke. As a vice president of the Women's Hospital of Greensboro, she worked to fund mammograms for poor women. As a parent and school volunteer, she gained insight into the problems created by underfunding public schools.

After seeing the effect of improved access to Medicaid services on previously uninsured patients, she came to her passionate commitment to universal health care. She knows how poverty, hunger, and unstable housing harm families and children, especially the sick and chronically ill, and will work tirelessly to address these gaping inequalities while in the North Carolina legislature. Moreover, Martha supports women's health without qualification. She will fight to ensure access to reproductive healthcare, and will refuse to support centers preying upon women by misleading them with baseless falsehoods.

Martha Shafer is a candidate with the training, knowledge, commitment, and courage to make a difference for North Carolinians -- and C4PC is honored to endorse her.

UNIVERSAL CARE IS THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE - IN COLORADO AND NATIONWIDE

Author and speaker T.R. Reid and Colorado State Senator Irene Aguilar, MD, joined us in Denver on April 11 for an event to benefit C4PC and the Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care. We benefited from their informed opinions about Colorado candidates who truly support universal care, and future steps advocates might take in the Centennial State and across the nation. Options discussed included multi-state consortiums, Medicare for All, Medicaid buy-in, and the potential of a Colorado insurance commissioner (like Dr. Aguilar?) who could advocate for patients, not profit. If you missed the event, you can still support C4PC here.

Please be in touch if you are running in office and want our endorsement.

C4PC ENDORSES DR. KYLE HORTON, MD, FOR CONGRESS IN NC-7

Baltimore, MD; February 21, 2018 -  Clinicians for Progressive Care is pleased to announce its endorsement of Dr. Kyle Horton for Congress in North Carolina’s 7th District. Dr. Horton has seen first hand how the American dream is on life support in North Carolina, and is ready to help fix our broken system. Dr. Horton will work towards universal health care, good jobs, supportive public schools, a clean environment, and our nation’s safety at home while defending its interests abroad. Donate to Dr. Horton.

Dr. Horton attended the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, then went to medical school at Wright State University in Ohio, where she also earned an MBA. She worked at the VA in Richmond, Virginia, where she fought for the improvement of suicide prevention for veterans.

Dr. Horton wants to make sure everyone can afford top-notch health care and not go bankrupt buying their medications. While serving the people of Eastern North Carolina as a primary care physician, she's seen first-hand what's broken. Dr. Horton will fight to expand Medicare coverage to all Americans, rein in prescription drug prices, and strengthen Medicare and Medicaid.

She knows our system disadvantages African-Americans and people of color, and wants to target resources to those communities. Her comprehensive plan to reduce the harms of opiate use and overdose includes treatment for substance use disorder, motivating appropriate prescription by clinicians, and a comprehensive approach to pain. Of course, she supports reproductive care and the repeal of unjust restrictions on abortion.

Dr. Horton will bring her expertise as a physician to serve our nation, helping heal our fractured health care, economy, and environment, for all the residents of North Carolina.

C4PC ENDORSES NILESH KALYANARAMAN, MD, FOR DELEGATE TO MARYLAND ASSEMBLY (43RD DISTRICT)


Baltimore, MD (February 14, 2018) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care is proud to announce its endorsement of Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman, MD, for Delegate in the Maryland Assembly, representing District 43 (North Baltimore). Dr. Nilesh has dedicated his professional life as a physician to treating the underserved, and will continue to advocate in Annapolis for all his constituents, especially the disadvantaged and vulnerable. DONATE to Dr. Nilesh.

Dr. Nilesh went to medical school at SUNY Brooklyn School of Medicine and trained in Internal Medicine at Emory University in Atlanta. He went on to care for imprisoned and homeless patients in Baltimore.

Dr. Nilesh is chief health officer at a community health center in Baltimore where he has strengthened programs to help those with pain and substance use problems. When Maryland expanded Medicaid coverage as part of the Affordable Care Act, he saw the positive impact on the lives of his patients. Medicaid gave ordinary people access to necessary health care that was previously unaffordable. Dr. Nilesh will work to expand coverage to all Marylanders, eliminate the 20 year gap in life expectancies across Baltimore neighborhoods, and reduce costs of prescription medicines.

In addition to health care reform, Dr. Nilesh seeks to ensure affordable housing by reforming rent court, expanding eviction prevention services and reinvesting in poor communities. He wants to strengthen public schools and job training programs that will help families adapt to the changing economy. He recognizes the segregation and racism that are a part of African Americans’ daily life.

Dr. Nilesh will be a force for good in the Maryland Assembly, and C4PC is excited to support him.

Baltimore, MD; February 7, 2018 -  Clinicians for Progressive Care enthusiastically endorses Dr. Nadia Hashimi, MD for Congress in Maryland’s 6th District. As a practicing pediatrician, Dr. Hashmini understands the social and environmental influences that shape children’s growth and works every day to improve them. Now she wants to take these insights to Washington for the benefit of all Marylanders. Donate to Dr. Hashimi here

Dr. Hashmini grew up in New York and attended Brandeis University. She went to medical school at SUNY Downstate in New York CIty, training as a pediatrician at NYU/Bellevue. She currently practices in Gaithersburg, Maryland. In addition to her work as a physician, she is a best-selling author of historical fiction, a mother of four, a researcher, and a first-generation American. She is expert in listening, learning, and finding solutions on the basis of empathy, and will use these skills to help fix our broken politics.

Dr. Hashimi wants to expand the fundamental right to health care through expanding Medicare, and address exorbitant medication costs through price controls and lifetime payment caps. To address racial inequality, she will target funds to school districts with high populations of black students that have been systemically overlooked. She will expand the resources available to individuals with substance use disorder and also remove incentives for physicians to over-prescribe narcotics. Dr. Hashimi will also fight for women in the workplace, including equal pay for equal work, reproductive health care and family planning.

Dr. Hashimi wants America to be respected, not resented abroad, and for us to care for the underprivileged at home. We can be a caring and prosperous Maryland and America with her training and vision. C4PC looks forward to helping Dr. Hashimi win the primary and represent MD-6 in Congress.

kathieforsenate.jpg

Baltimore, MD; January 25, 2018 -  C4PC is thrilled to endorse Dr. Kathie Allen, Democrat, for Utah State Senate District 8. Dr. Allen, a compassionate fighter, has spent her career serving patients in Utah and understands the challenges facing poor and middle class families. She is determined to transform our healthcare system to help ordinary Utahns. DONATE to Dr. Allen.

Dr. Allen went to medical school at Loma Linda University and trained in Family Medicine at the University of Utah. In her own private practice, and at the Utah Transit Authority where she now cares for transit workers and their families, she has helped all kinds of people. Throughout her career, Dr. Allen has been a leader among physicians with the Utah Medical Association and Salt Lake County Medical Society.

Dr. Allen supports universal health insurance through Medicare while recognizing that regulations must be streamlined. She will prioritize making prescription medicines more affordable by empowering the federal government to negotiate prices and easing the path of generics to market. Dr. Allen draws on her personal experience of her father’s struggle with opioid addiction to advocate for greater access to treatment.

On every issue that matters to Utah, public lands, health care, the economy, schools, and jobs, Dr. Allen has workable compassionate solutions. Utahns believe in practical progressivism, and Dr. Allen will fight for them in the State Senate.

C4PC ENDORSES ROB DAVIDSON, MD, FOR CONGRESS IN MICHIGAN'S 2ND DISTRICT

Baltimore, MD; January 17, 2018 -  Clinicians for Progressive Care endorses Dr. Rob Davidson, MD, for Congress in Michigan’s 2nd District. Dr. Davidson is an Emergency Medicine physician and school board member, not a career politician. His experience improving the lives of his patients has led him to a broader calling: the fight for health, prosperity, and equality for constituents in West Michigan. DONATE TO ROB DAVIDSON.

It is obvious that Rob is the perfect opponent to take on the avid Trump supporter and Republican incumbent Bill Huizenga. Huizenga has voted with Trump 97% of the time, spending his time in Washington, DC, attacking immigrants and the poor, voting to destroy insurance and give away Michiganers' hard-earned money in tax cuts for the very rich.

Dr. Davidson is a native son of Michigan. He graduated from Kalamazoo College and went on to medical school at Michigan State University. He left Michigan to complete residency in Emergency Medicine in Portland, Maine before returning to Ottawa County, where he lives with his wife and three children.

We at C4PC are impressed by Dr. Davidson’s commitment to investing in and partnering with underserved communities to reduce racial disparities. As an active member of his school board, Dr. Davidson understands the necessity of quality public education for all children, regardless of where they live, and increasing access to college and continuing education programs.

Dr. Davidson understands the cost of failing to provide broad-based, equitable, effective access to mental health and substance use treatment. In his emergency room he has seen first-hand, and  helped to treat, the devastation visited on individuals and families by gun violence and is determined to reform the status quo.

As a healer, reformer, policy expert, and concerned citizen, Dr. Davidson is the right choice for West Michigan in Congress.

C4PC ENDORSES BETH LISTON, MD, PHD, FOR OHIO STATE HOUSE, 21ST DISTRICT

Baltimore, MD; January 10, 2018 - Clinicians for Progressive Care proudly endorses Dr. Beth Liston, MD, PhD, for the Ohio House of Representatives in District 21. Dr. Liston is a physician, scientist and educator committed to supporting her community with pragmatic, compassionate solutions. DONATE TO BETH LISTON.

Beth Liston grew up in the district that she hopes to represent. The Dublin Village AMC movie theater where she got her first job is where her family now goes for movie night. The restaurant she and her husband went to for their first date is where she and her sisters threw their parents a surprise 60th birthday party.

Dr. Liston completed a combined MD-PhD program at Ohio State University, with her Internal Medicine and Pediatrics training at Yale. Returning to Ohio, she joined the faculty at OSU where she treats patients and teaches medical students and residents. She is a nationally renowned expert on how teamwork among health professionals can help patients. Dr. Liston’s policy experience includes work in the Columbus Medical Association and the Ohio Department of Medicaid.

 Neighbor, friend, mother, physician, educator

Neighbor, friend, mother, physician, educator

Her plan to address health disparities, the opioid epidemic and the rising costs of medications and insurance is based on her expert understanding of these complex problems. She wants to make sure pharmaceutical companies can’t mislead patients through tricky advertising. She is determined to help create affordable insurance options for all. For her, combatting systematic racism means tackling education, housing and health care.

Dr. Liston knows that besides health, social factors like good jobs and educational opportunity are critical to a community’s wellbeing. As a valued neighbor, friend, and professional in the District, and a nationally regarded clinician-educator, she is a true combination of expertise, practicality, and warmth.

C4PC ENDORSES HIRAL TIPIRNENI, MD, FOR CONGRESS IN AZ-8

 Dr. Tipirneni has the right combination of personal grit, intellectual power, and outsider vision that will bring common-sense kindness back to Washington for the people of the Grand Canyon State.

Dr. Tipirneni has the right combination of personal grit, intellectual power, and outsider vision that will bring common-sense kindness back to Washington for the people of the Grand Canyon State.

Baltimore, MD; January 2, 2018 - Clinicians for Progressive Care has the honor of endorsing Dr. Hiral Tipirneni for Congress in Arizona’s 8th District. Dr. Tipirneni is a physician, researcher, community leader, and activist, a woman of knowledge, accomplishment, and compassion. She has known first-hand what it means to be an immigrant, a striving blue-collar student, and a family member of ailing relatives. DONATE TO HIRAL TIPIRNENI.

Dr. Tipirneni graduated from Northeast Ohio Medical University and completed her residency at the University of Michigan’s Emergency Medicine program. She moved to Phoenix with her husband where she has practiced emergency medicine for over 20 years while also leading a team of cancer researchers, serving on multiple local nonprofit boards, and raising her three children.

Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, C4PC’s Treasurer, says, “As Arizona’s 8th seeks to fill its Congressional seat in a special election, Dr. Tipirneni has the right combination of personal grit, intellectual power, and outsider vision that will bring common-sense kindness back to Washington for the people of the Grand Canyon State.”

Arizonans will benefit from Dr. Tipirneni’s progressive stance on health care including her commitment to universal care through Medicare expansion and reducing barriers to care faced by women, people of color and LGBT individuals. To contain the exorbitant costs of health care, Dr. Tipirneni supports price controls, competition and increased transparency.

Dr. Tipirneni wants an Arizona (and an America) that works for all, with better public schools, a secure Social Security and Medicare, government accountability, and access to child care. In short, she is the right Arizonan to represent the 8th District.

C4PC ENDORSES CHRISTINE EADY MANN, DO, FOR CONGRESS IN TX-31

 Family doctor, small-business owner, working mother. Good for Texas and the nation. A true progressive, not an opportunist.

Family doctor, small-business owner, working mother. Good for Texas and the nation. A true progressive, not an opportunist.

Baltimore, MD (December 15, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care   announces its endorsement of Christine Eady Mann, DO, for Congress in Texas’ 31st District. Dr. Mann has been a family doctor in central Texas for nearly 20 years and understands what strengthening the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid -- on the way to universal coverage -- will do for Texans. As a physician, small-business owner, and working mother, Dr. Mann will restore common sense humanity to Congress. DONATE TO CHRISTINE MANN.

Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, the Treasurer of C4PC, says, “Dr. Christine Mann possesses an exciting combination of health expertise, the knowledge of what’s needed to make the Texas economy grow, and first-hand experience with the challenges of raising (and healing) children in Trump’s America. Unlike others in the primary, she is a true progressive, the right candidate to defeat the Trumpist incumbent John Carter. Carter has voted with Trump 96% of the time, and has spent his 16 years in Congress attempting to limit women’s reproductive health care, blaming immigrants, and trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He’s even voted for the GOP's Tax bill – which will make it harder for working class families to get by while increasing the deficit by over a trillion dollars."

Family physician, public health advocate, protestor, activist, experienced collaborator and team-builder.

Baltimore, MD (December 11, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care announces its endorsement of Richard Bruno, MD, to represent the 41st District, Northwest Baltimore, as delegate in Maryland’s Assembly. A family doctor and preventive medicine specialist, husband, father, and long-time advocate for social justice and universal healthcare, Dr. Bruno will bring a passionate, experienced, expert activism to Maryland state government. DONATE TO RICHARD BRUNO.

Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, the Treasurer of C4PC, says, “Dr.  Bruno is well known in Baltimore, and across Maryland and the entire US, as a tireless fighter for justice. He has volunteered in the trenches, as a union organizer, board member of many justice-minded health organizations, and campaigner for fair wages at Baltimore medical centers. But he’s no mere self-righteous firebrand: Richard was appointed by Governor Larry Hogan to a state medical council. He knows what’s right and won’t back down - yet isn’t afraid to reach across the aisle for the good of Marylanders.”

Dr. Bruno is from Little Rock, Arkansas, and has attended some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions, including Princeton University and Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine. He trained in Family & Preventive Medicine at MedStar Franklin Square and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

C4PC ENDORSES DANIELLE MITCHELL, MD, FOR CONGRESS IN TN-3

 Danielle Mitchell, MD, is the right candidate to represent Tennessee's 3rd in Congress.

Danielle Mitchell, MD, is the right candidate to represent Tennessee's 3rd in Congress.

Baltimore, MD (November 29, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care announces its endorsement of Dr. Danielle Mitchell for Congress in Tennessee’s 3rd District. DONATE TO DANIELLE MITCHELL.

Danielle's platform is informed by her experiences both as a family physician and small business owner. She has made universal, affordable health insurance coverage a cornerstone of her campaign. Meanwhile, incumbent Chuck Fleischmann perseverates on repealing "Obamacare," despite the ACA's success in decreasing uninsurance among Tennesseans by nearly 30%.

Danielle is passionate about combating the influence of corporate interests in both healthcare and government. Her policies on issues ranging from a livable wage to environmental protections reflect her readiness to place the needs of every-day Tennesseans above the private interests bankrolling Washington.

Clinicians for Progressive Care is proud to stand with Dr. Danielle Mitchell, the right woman for the job in TN-3!

C4PC ENDORSES JASON WESTIN, MD, FOR CONGRESS IN TX-7

WESTINPHOTO.jpg

Baltimore, MD (November 22, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care announces its endorsement of Jason Westin, MD, for Congress in Texas’ 7th District. DONATE TO JASON WESTIN.

A cancer specialist, husband, father, and proud Texan, Dr. Westin will bring compassion for all Americans to the House of Representatives and courage to the fight against extremist, anti-intellectual Trumpism. Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, the Treasurer of C4PC, says, “Republican incumbent John Culbertson has distinguished himself as a slavish Trumper, voting with him 98% of the time and sharing his hostility to immigrants, affordable healthcare, and women’s reproductive rights. On the other hand, Dr. Westin is poised to bring his experience as an oncologist, researcher, and policy advocate to Congress. A new broom sweeps clean, and a great doctor can diagnose and treat what ails the body politic.”

Dr. Westin is a well known MD Anderson faculty member whose laboratory investigates cancer treatments based on the immune system. He has become an ever more prominent voice among healthcare professionals fighting for what’s right: affordable, compassionate, dignified treatment for all Americans. As Dr. Westin says, he is the right man for the right district. Culbertson’s colors are showing more and more clearly, marking him as an unsteady, unstable Washington insider. Let’s send Dr. Westin to clean up Congress with the white coat of truth.

For Immediate Release

Baltimore, MD (November 15, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care announces its endorsement of John W. Duncan for Congress in Texas’ 6th District. John knows first-hand how important access to high-quality, affordable healthcare is to millions of Americans. While working to provide healthcare to Texans living with HIV/AIDS John realized the urgency of concrete steps to ensure good health for everyone. DONATE TO JOHN W. DUNCAN.

Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, the Treasurer of C4PC, says, “John Duncan is an exciting voice for the underserved, with practical, real-world experience in management, healthcare, and law. He is the right candidate to defeat the long-term, Trumpist incumbent Joe Barton, who has spent his time in Congress attempting to limit women’s reproductive health care, scapegoating immigrants, and trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act.”

Besides his advocacy for universal care through single payer, John Duncan supports evidence-backed treatment for substance use disorders rather than the failed system of imprisonment. He believes in the rights of the disabled to live in the community instead of institutions, understands the role of white supremacy in health disparities, and knows that transgender care matters to all of us. We look forward to supporting John to flip TX-6.

While Dr. Solomon presents a full range of his policy views on his website, C4PC is particularly taken by his robust vision for healthcare system change. Bob wants Medicare for All; an end to the "war on drugs" and the jail-industrial complex which is state aggression against black men; and real negotiation on the part of the Federal government for affordable pharmaceuticals. 

Bob will be a special guest of C4PC in Washington, DC (site of this year's American College of Emergency Physician's meeting) at Capitol City Brewing Company, on October 30th at 5pm. Please visit the event on Facebook for more details.
