When families are empowered to make the best decisions for their own flourishing, we all win.

Leadership is only effective when it seeks to serve and promote the flourishing of a society. These are Sara-Elizabeth’s top three priorities in the area of health and society.

1. Extend transparency in healthcare pricing.

We’ve made progress, including at the federal level, of helping Kentuckians know what they’re going to pay for hospital services. This transparency is needed across types of healthcare and medical testing.

2. Step down CON.

Kentucky’s broad, stifling Certificate of Need laws have far outlived their usefulness. Stepping down certificate-of-need requirements in certain areas of healthcare will foster competitive pricing in this expensive healthcare economy.

3. Fight human trafficking and child abuse.

Hubert Humphrey said, “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members. The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.” Let’s protect our most vulnerable with policies that hold businesses accountable for exploitation and ensure every Kentucky child has a safe place to live.

Sara-Elizabeth’s other health and society priorities include measures to leverage capitalism against carbon emissions, require paternal responsibility, equip parents in crisis to thrive while choosing life, improve maternal health and childbirth outcomes, ban the marketing of predatory gambling to children, ensure access to medical cannabis, and increase access to quality education, mental health support, safe and warm housing, and help to overcome addiction.
