Our Legislative and Election Strategy

Why Ask Nurses and Doctors:

We aim to harness the interest and concern of the American public about the right to affordable health care coverage, controls on pharmaceutical prices and an effective public health system response. These are defining issues in today’s elections in the United States.

What’s Our Mission:

Ask Nurses and Doctors (AND) is a bipartisan venture whose mission is to help elect Congressional representatives and a President of the United States who prioritize the solution of US health care problems.

How We Will Achieve Our Mission:

From now till the 2024 elections, we are working to help pass health reform legislation at the state or national level, and to elect competitive candidates and/or incumbents who prioritize health care reform. We will operate in swing states and competitive Congressional elections. In the 2018, 2020, and 2022 cycles, we worked with 15-30 health care professionals in each of approximately 10 Congressional districts. In addition, we organized local health care professionals in the following swing states: Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin.

Whatever health care related communication a candidate wishes to convey, delivery by a health professional can significantly increase the likelihood that any audience will hear and act on the message.

How We Support Health Professionals:

1. Training material/expertise on both the COVID pandemic and health care reform. Nationally recognized experts in writing, video messaging and social media are available for consultation.
2.  A community of health professionals who are passionate about getting Congressional candidates elected who support a practical way forward to
achieve universal health care coverage.
3.  Access to the Congressional candidate and campaign staff for the purpose of follow-up both before and after the election.
4.  Follow-up on any efforts by individual health professionals to pursue health reform and COVID pandemic solutions.
