Baltimore, MD; January 25, 2018 - C4PC is thrilled to endorse Dr. Kathie Allen, Democrat, for Utah State Senate District 8. Dr. Allen, a compassionate fighter, has spent her career serving patients in Utah and understands the challenges facing poor and middle class families. She is determined to transform our healthcare system to help ordinary Utahns. DONATE to Dr. Allen.
Dr. Allen went to medical school at Loma Linda University and trained in Family Medicine at the University of Utah. In her own private practice, and at the Utah Transit Authority where she now cares for transit workers and their families, she has helped all kinds of people. Throughout her career, Dr. Allen has been a leader among physicians with the Utah Medical Association and Salt Lake County Medical Society.
Dr. Allen supports universal health insurance through Medicare while recognizing that regulations must be streamlined. She will prioritize making prescription medicines more affordable by empowering the federal government to negotiate prices and easing the path of generics to market. Dr. Allen draws on her personal experience of her father’s struggle with opioid addiction to advocate for greater access to treatment.
On every issue that matters to Utah, public lands, health care, the economy, schools, and jobs, Dr. Allen has workable compassionate solutions. Utahns believe in practical progressivism, and Dr. Allen will fight for them in the State Senate.
