Baltimore, MD (March 14, 2018) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care is pleased to endorse Sachin Hebbar for Delegate in the Maryland Assembly representing District 42B (Baltimore County). Sachin will leverage his experience as a scientist, community activist and immigrant to help problems affecting everyone in Maryland.
Sachin was born in India where he studied biology and went on to earn a PhD from Mumbai University. He came to the United States as a postdoctoral fellow at Wake Forest University and has received multiple scientific grants to study cancer, cellular and molecular biology. Now living in Lutherville, MD, he founded Indivisible North Baltimore County to organize against the Trump Administration’s threats to human rights.
Sachin wants to improve the health of Marylanders with single payer health care. He supports limitation of the exorbitant costs of medications by allowing Medicare to negotiate prices and reforming patent laws for lifesaving drugs. Sachin also understands that direct action to address racial inequality is paramount to community health. He wants to increase access to care for people with chronic health conditions while also promoting safe housing, quality education and nutrition.
Sachin’s expertise as an organizer, scientist, advocate, and parent will make him an ideal delegate for the people of Baltimore County. We are proud to lend him our support.
