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.
