Clinicians for Progressive Care proudly announces our endorsement of Sam Park, Democrat for re-election to represent Georgia House District 101. DONATE to Sam Park here. DONATE to ALL C4PC endorsees here.
Sam was first elected in 2016 and has shown a strong commitment to health care justice for his constituents and all Georgians.
The son of Korean immigrants, Sam was born and raised in Gwinnett County, Georgia where he attended public school. He then entered Georgia State University under a HOPE scholarship, graduating law school there as well. He has fought for the health care rights of those with debilitating conditions and without the money to navigate our system – a system maximizes the profit of corporations.
Health care access became personal for Sam when his mother was diagnosed with stage IV cancer. She underwent intensive treatments that would not have been possible without public insurance.
Sam is deeply committed to the individual mandate as both a moral imperative and economic necessity. 1.5 million Georgians are without health care. Georgia failed to accept Medicaid expansion, which would have reduced health inequality in the state; Sam will fight to ensure all Georgians have access to high quality health care.
In addition, Sam will expand medication assisted treatment and access to opioid overdose rescue medications to help reverse the epidemic of opiate overdose deaths. He will help overturn financial and other barriers to abortion and contraception. Furthermore, he will strive to end discriminatory practices toward immigrants and the LGBTQ community.
Sam Park believes in health for all Georgians and everyone in America. We at C4PC support him and know he will be a great representative.
