3rd Congressional District Candidate Danielle Mitchell, M.D. Hosts Healthcare Town Hal

Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Dr. Danielle Mitchell, a board-certified primary care and sports medicine physician, and independent business owner of a community healthcare clinic that serves over 1,300 people in Chattanooga, will be hosting a town hall-style event to discuss healthcare solutions with concerned members of the public on Wednesday. 

The meeting, organized as part of Dr. Mitchell’s bid to win Tennessee’s 3rd Congressional District in the 2018 midterm elections, takes place at 6 p.m. on the 4th floor of the Chattanooga Public Library, at 1001 Broad St. 

In the past weeks, the efforts to dismantle the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) reached another milestone in the Senate. Now, more than ever, Dr. Mitchell says "Tennesseans need their voices to be heard." Dr. Mitchell added that the overwhelming message from independent, Democrat, and Republican citizens alike is that "Our healthcare rights need to be protected." 

“We are interested in not only hearing people's concerns regarding healthcare, but we will discuss the real issues that have made healthcare in the United States unaffordable," said Dr. Mitchell. "We will be identifying corrupt behaviors from our current elected officials which includes endorsing price gouging by corporations and other immoral actions." 

The event will follow a traditional town hall format, beginning with a short presentation by Dr. Mitchell, followed by questions and comments by the audience and ends with preview footage of the documentary "Fever Pitch" which highlights the issues in healthcare. 

Dr. Mitchell encourages all to come and participate regardless of party affiliation, or ideology. 

“Healthcare is a topic that affects us all, and we must work together to arrive at a solution where all Tennesseans are protected and receive the care they need to stay healthy and keep our economy stable,” Dr. Mitchell added.
