C4PC ENDORSES DREW PATE, MD, FOR DELEGATE IN MARYLAND ASSEMBLY'S 41ST DISTRICT (NW BALTIMORE)

Clinicians for Progressive Care is pleased to endorse Drew Pate, MD, the progressive choice for Maryland Assembly 41st District (Northwest Baltimore). During twenty five years of practice as a physician, Dr. Pate has achieved a thorough and compassionate understanding of what makes our healthcare system unfair and unsustainable: a failure to meet people’s needs where they are, fairly and affordably. His campaign focuses on what the people of Baltimore need, and does not pit one group against another with insinuations of violence or dehumanization.

Dr. Pate is double board-certified physician in psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry. He completed medical school at LSU School of Medicine (elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha society) and completed residency at the Sheppard Pratt Hospital in Baltimore and at Harvard Medical School/Children’s Hospital in Baltimore.

In addition to his prestigious academic training and clinical expertise, Dr. Pate has something which many candidates (and too many of our establishment political figures) do not understand: the knowledge that community based health care is a necessary way forward to provide healthcare to the neediest and most vulnerable in a way which meets their needs. As a grassroots candidate with the Green Party, Dr. Pate can work with neighborhoods to make change, without being beholden to the status quo.

We need universal care, community health as an intersectional effort to treat the effects of racism, understanding for those suffering from substance use disorder, and the expertise to bring those proposals to fruition. C4PC believes Dr. Pate is the candidate to make those happen.

Baltimore, MD; January 2, 2018 - Clinicians for Progressive Care has the honor of endorsing Dr. Hiral Tipirneni for Congress in Arizona’s 8th District. Dr. Tipirneni is a physician, researcher, community leader, and activist, a woman of knowledge, accomplishment, and compassion. She has known first-hand what it means to be an immigrant, a striving blue-collar student, and a family member of ailing relatives. DONATE TO HIRAL TIPIRNENI.

Dr. Tipirneni graduated from Northeast Ohio Medical University and completed her residency at the University of Michigan’s Emergency Medicine program. She moved to Phoenix with her husband where she has practiced emergency medicine for over 20 years while also leading a team of cancer researchers, serving on multiple local nonprofit boards, and raising her three children.

Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, C4PC’s Treasurer, says, “As Arizona’s 8th seeks to fill its Congressional seat in a special election, Dr. Tipirneni has the right combination of personal grit, intellectual power, and outsider vision that will bring common-sense kindness back to Washington for the people of the Grand Canyon State.”

Arizonans will benefit from Dr. Tipirneni’s progressive stance on health care including her commitment to universal care through Medicare expansion and reducing barriers to care faced by women, people of color and LGBT individuals. To contain the exorbitant costs of health care, Dr. Tipirneni supports price controls, competition and increased transparency.

Dr. Tipirneni wants an Arizona (and an America) that works for all, with better public schools, a secure Social Security and Medicare, government accountability, and access to child care. In short, she is the right Arizonan to represent the 8th District.

Baltimore, MD (November 29, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care announces its endorsement of Dr. Danielle Mitchell for Congress in Tennessee’s 3rd District. DONATE TO DANIELLE MITCHELL.

Danielle's platform is informed by her experiences both as a family physician and small business owner. She has made universal, affordable health insurance coverage a cornerstone of her campaign. Meanwhile, incumbent Chuck Fleischmann perseverates on repealing "Obamacare," despite the ACA's success in decreasing uninsurance among Tennesseans by nearly 30%.

Danielle is passionate about combating the influence of corporate interests in both healthcare and government. Her policies on issues ranging from a livable wage to environmental protections reflect her readiness to place the needs of every-day Tennesseans above the private interests bankrolling Washington.

Clinicians for Progressive Care is proud to stand with Dr. Danielle Mitchell, the right woman for the job in TN-3!
