Why Tedra?

Tedra has direct experience working in the healthcare system, so she has a firm understanding of its challenges in NY21 and the solutions required to overcome them. In her founding role with the St. Lawrence Health Initiative, Tedra secured federal and state funding to provide preventive screening and follow-up care to hundreds of hard-working North Country residents who could not afford health insurance. And as a member of the North Country Health Systems Redesign Commission, Tedra helped develop a report recommending “building capacity and promoting value in the North Country” to address the unique challenges faced by our rural healthcare system.
