Statement from Doctors for America Chair Dr. Mona Mangat on Dr. Tom Price’s nomination as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services in light of recent allegations of insider trading.
“Doctors across the country are deeply concerned about the nomination of Dr. Tom Price to serve as the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“Recent reports alleging Dr. Price used his political influence for personal financial gain are troubling and should be thoroughly examined. A leader in charge of our patients’ health care must safeguard their needs against the special interests. These allegations throw into question Dr. Price’s ability to be that leader. While we believe Dr. Price’s misguided policies are reason enough to stand in opposition to his nomination, we hope the Senate will give him a thorough vetting and, in light of this recent news, vote no on his confirmation.”
Doctors for America mobilizes doctors and medical students to be leaders in putting patients over politics on the pressing issues of the day to improve the health of our patients, communities, and nation.
