We must not only guarantee health care to all as a right, but also end the long-standing racial disparities that exist within the health care system. When we are in the White House, we will address the need for more black doctors, more black dentists, more black nurses, and more black mental health providers who can provide culturally competent care in their communities. We will:
1) Significantly expand the National Health Service Corps, Community Health Centers, and Teaching Health Centers to bring more doctors and nurses of color to underserved areas.
2) Increase the number of nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants and allow them to practice at the top of their license in order to increase the number of practitioners of color to provide culturally competent care in the communities they serve.
3) Cancel student debt, which will disproportionately help black doctors and nurses.
Bernie is counting on all of us to continue fighting for our progressive agenda. There is only one way we will transform this country – and that is together.
