Hospitals Are Safe for Procedures

The Wisconsin Hospital Association, along with physicians around the state are encouraging Wisconsin residents to not put off important procedures and other preventative medicine in fear of COVID-19 in hospitals and other care settings. Doing so may cause more harm than the virus itself.

 

In this article, an Emergency Room Physician believes citizens are unnecessarily fearful of COVID-19. I have worked with Dr. Westlake on many HOPE Agenda bills. He is a valuable resource for us as we make policy that impacts our state's medical community. I am glad to see Dr. Westlake lend his expertise on the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Additionally, former Governor Tommy Thompson released a public service announcement in collaboration with the Wisconsin Hospital Association urging Wisconsinites to seek needed medical care. You can watch it by clicking the below picture.

Capital City Sunday

Last Sunday, I joined  Capital City Sunday on WKOW 27 out of Madison to talk about our state’s unemployment woes. I remain extremely concerned with Governor Evers lack of leadership on this important issue. Every single day my office receives numerous phone calls from distraught citizens who have been waiting months for unemployment payments.

Click the below picture to hear more of my thoughts on this issue.
