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.
