STAT Endorsed Candidates

One critical part of this movement is to recruit and support medical professionals who can bring their knowledge of the healthcare industry to elected offices.

“I practiced for 25 years before I was elected to Congress in 2002. As an OB-GYN, I often thought Congress had no real understanding of my patients and my practice. So, I made the difficult decision to put my medical practice on hold so I could help represent our nation’s physicians, healthcare professionals, and patients in D.C. I encourage you to consider doing the same. The country needs your voice.” – Dr. Burgess
