Baltimore, MD; January 10, 2018 - Clinicians for Progressive Care proudly endorses Dr. Beth Liston, MD, PhD, for the Ohio House of Representatives in District 21. Dr. Liston is a physician, scientist and educator committed to supporting her community with pragmatic, compassionate solutions. DONATE TO BETH LISTON.
Beth Liston grew up in the district that she hopes to represent. The Dublin Village AMC movie theater where she got her first job is where her family now goes for movie night. The restaurant she and her husband went to for their first date is where she and her sisters threw their parents a surprise 60th birthday party.
Dr. Liston completed a combined MD-PhD program at Ohio State University, with her Internal Medicine and Pediatrics training at Yale. Returning to Ohio, she joined the faculty at OSU where she treats patients and teaches medical students and residents. She is a nationally renowned expert on how teamwork among health professionals can help patients. Dr. Liston’s policy experience includes work in the Columbus Medical Association and the Ohio Department of Medicaid.
Her plan to address health disparities, the opioid epidemic and the rising costs of medications and insurance is based on her expert understanding of these complex problems. She wants to make sure pharmaceutical companies can’t mislead patients through tricky advertising. She is determined to help create affordable insurance options for all. For her, combatting systematic racism means tackling education, housing and health care.
Dr. Liston knows that besides health, social factors like good jobs and educational opportunity are critical to a community’s wellbeing. As a valued neighbor, friend, and professional in the District, and a nationally regarded clinician-educator, she is a true combination of expertise, practicality, and warmth.
