Please join us this Thursday 7:30 pm for a virtual meet & greet with Robbie Goldstein, candidate for Congress in Massachusetts’ 8th district. Robbie is an infectious disease specialist, a primary care physician at MGH, and a bold leader whose background & policy positions are uniquely suited to the challenges facing us today:
“AS A PHYSICIAN IN BOSTON, A CITY WITH SOME OF THE BEST HOSPITALS IN THE WORLD, I SEE PATIENTS EVERY DAY WHO STRUGGLE TO GET THE CARE THEY NEED. TOO MANY OF MY PATIENTS HAVE TO MAKE IMPOSSIBLE CHOICES: BETWEEN TAKING THEIR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS OR PUTTING FOOD ON THE TABLE; BETWEEN GETTING A FULL DAY’S PAY OR COMING IN FOR THE MEDICAL APPOINTMENT THEY NEED.
I HAVE SEEN THE WAYS WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU LIVE IMPACT YOUR HEALTH.
TODAY, POLITICIANS SPEND A LOT OF TIME FOCUSING ON PAYING FOR MEDICINE AND MEDICAL INTERVENTION, AND NOWHERE NEAR ENOUGH TIME ON THE SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH — KEEPING OUR NEIGHBORHOODS SAFE FROM GUN VIOLENCE, REDUCING POLLUTION, AND ENSURING EVERY FAMILY HAS A STABLE HOME AND EVERY WORKER EARNS A LIVING WAGE.
IT’S TIME TO THINK BIGGER AND DO BETTER FOR OUR COMMUNITIES.”
You can learn more about Robbie at: https://www.robbieforchange.com/The 8th district includes the Boston neighborhoods of the North End, West End, Beacon Hill, Downtown, South Boston, and parts of Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, and West Roxbury; before traveling south through parts of Bristol, Norfolk, and Plymouth Counties.
