Living through a global pandemic has put a spotlight on the deficiencies and inequities in our health care system. Healthcare professionals are working in stressful and sometimes dangerous conditions. Communities of color have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Essential workers are putting themselves at risk. Lower income workers cannot afford to stay home.
Healthcare is one of my most important priorities. South Carolina ranks 8th worst in the nation for healthcare costs, access and outcomes. We have high rates of diabetes, heart disease, liver cancer and infant and maternal mortality.
As your representative in the legislature, I will work hard to ensure affordable healthcare for all. As citizens, we all must take an active role in healthcare reform and make our stories known to policymakers.
Let's Stay Safe and Strong Together,
