    Fred remains a common-sense voice when it comes to the heated health care debates. As a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, his focus is on ensuring everyone here in Michigan and across the country has access to affordable, quality health care and those with pre-existing conditions are protected.

    Fred is also leading the charge to speed up the development and delivery of life-saving cures. His bold initiative the 21st Century Cures Act, signed into law in 2016, is helping patients and families and supports our local employers to ensure they continue to create jobs here at home, and that the United States remains the world leader in medical innovations.

    Additionally, Fred has been a bipartisan leader in working to reform our nation’s mental health system, ensuring the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is fully funded, and making certain our community health centers have the resources they need.

    Health care for the modern era should be responsive, fast, and patient-focused, Fred will continue to champion bipartisan legislation that meets the unique needs of each individual.

    As a result of his bipartisan leadership on 21st Century Cures, Fred was also awarded the Edwin C. Whitehead Award for Medical Research Advocacy.  Click HERE to learn more about Fred’s lifesaving work.
