Nancy Smith believes that every Michigander deserves quality, affordable healthcare. In the State House, she will work to ensure that no Michigander is denied health insurance coverage due to a pre-existing condition -- regardless of what happens in Washington. She also understands the difficulties many rural communities face in attaining primary, dental, and mental healthcare, and she will work to reduce these disparities.
Nancy also understands the important role of paid sick leave in safeguarding public health, and, as your state representative, she will support efforts to expand Michigan’s mandatory paid sick leave law.
Finally, Nancy is committed to confronting the opioid epidemic, which has ravaged many of Michigan’s rural communities. She will support efforts to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable, punish ‘pain clinics’ that engage in predatory prescribing practices, and increase access to treatment.
