Tennessee Senator Mark Green, MD, will speak at the Hamilton County Pachyderm Club on Monday.
Senator Mark Green serves as the vice chairman of the Tn. Senate Commerce and Insurance Committee, is a member of the Tn. Senate Judiciary and Local Government Committees and represents the 22nd Senate District, home to the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army.
“The Tennessee Legislature has worked to create a pro-growth, competitive business environment in our state that has protected our hard-working citizens from higher unemployment and an attack on the paycheck through excessive taxes,” said Senator Green. “I look forward to discussing key topics impacting our state at this moment, such as the impact of the Affordable Care Act, the financial stability of Tennessee in contrast to the federal government, and offer a preview on the legislation in the upcoming 2014 General Assembly.”
Dr. Green came to Tennessee as an army special operation flight surgeon assigned to the 160th Special Ops Aviation Regiment. There he planned and flew on some of the war on terror’s most covert operations. His most memorable mission was the capture of Saddam Hussein. Dr. Green interviewed Saddam for six hours on the night of his capture and wrote a book detailing the interview and his service with the military’s “Jedi Nights,” as he calls them. During this time he was selected as the Army Aviation Association Flight Surgeon of the year.
In his civilian life, Dr. Green is the president and CEO of Align MD, an emergency department staffing company based in Clarksville, Tn., which provides leadership, management and staffing to emergency departments in four southeastern states. Dr. Green founded the Align MD Foundation, which provides healthcare to underserved populations throughout the world.
The Hamilton County Pachyderm Club meets each Monday at the GOP headquarters at 1428 Chestnut Street, Suite E with additional parking available at Finley Stadium. Lunch is provided for $12 or interested citizens may attend for the program only.
