It’s National Rural Health Day

Healthcare is deeply personal, which is why I always fight to put patients first. No matter the location of Iowans, I believe they should have access to a healthcare system that offers more choice and more affordable options. 

From Jefferson to Shenandoah to Ottumwa – and everywhere in between – there’s doctors, nurses, caregivers, and first responders that are doing lifesaving work. Today, we recognize those who step up when we need help! 



As your Congressman, I’m working to ensure we have: 

  • Access to excellent and properly trained healthcare workers in every hospital, urgent care, and general medical office. 

  • Expanded investment in rural broadband so telehealth services are available for every Iowan. 

  • Strong Medicare services because we need to ensure everyone who has paid into the system gets what they are owed.  

  • Supportive home health services that can provide care where it is needed.   

There’s no doubt that our country’s healthcare system can be strengthened, so I will keep fighting to prioritize the needs of Iowans and ensure everybody has affordable access to high-quality care.   

Our work isn’t done yet. There’s still plenty to do. To ensure you get all the information about future events, please join me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.  You can also sign up for our news alerts list here to make certain you don’t miss out:
