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.
