Nina worked for years in medical research, and she knows what exactly what a diagnosis provides a patient. It provides them hope. After Nina completed her foundational work on Stickler syndrome, she watched as those who learned about their condition became empowered. They formed support groups and nationwide networks to learn and grow together. This is what health care is, it’s hope for those facing the ultimate uncertainty.
Nina believes that health care is a basic human right. This country is one of a few in the world that fails to provide its citizens with health care. She will advocate for a single payer system and work to reduce health disparities so all Pennsylvanians have quality healthcare.
As a woman and leading women’s rights activist, Nina believes that no restrictions should be placed on a woman’s right to choose. She will work to ensure that health care decisions are between a patient and their doctor.
