On the issues


Alabama is one of the few states left to expand Medicaid, leaving hundreds of thousands of Alabamians left without health insurance. At the same time, Alabama has one of the lowest life expectancies in the country and one of the highest rates of maternal mortality – disproportionately impacting Black mothers and infants. 


Voters across District 2 can’t afford 30-minute drives to the nearest emergency room or 24-hour urgent care facility. Mothers can’t afford long commutes to a labor and delivery unit. We live in the most powerful nation on earth and, when someone needs to see a doctor, they should be able to. 


As your Congressman, I’ll work to:


  • Build on the legacy of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by working to ensure that every person in Alabama can get a checkup every year and advocating for healthcare policies that prioritize accessibility, affordability, and quality of health care – particularly in rural communities.


  • Expand healthcare networks, increase funding for community health centers and foster partnerships with reputable companies capable of delivering quality, affordable healthcare to our District so that the care we deserve is available on time, every time.

  • Address healthcare disparities, like our state’s maternal health crisis that disproportionately impacts Black mothers and infants. 

  • Protect reproductive rights and ensure every patient can make their own healthcare decisions - on their own, for their own futures.

  • Build out healthcare networks in rural communities through grants that leverage partnerships with our community colleges and existing healthcare providers to reach more people.
