North Carolina’s rural areas are suffering from a lack of access to quality medical facilities. We have seen far too many rural hospitals declare bankruptcy and close in the past decade. Nobody should be forced to drive several hours away from their homes just to see a doctor. In Congress, I will do everything I can to provide the resources these hospitals need to stay open. We must improve infrastructure in these rural areas to make our hospitals more accessible to the people they serve. Finally, I will continue the fight to guarantee a woman’s right to choose what to do with her body.
