Too many North Carolinians lack access to quality health care. That’s why Tess supports expanding access to healthcare to every person in Northeastern North Carolina. 


In Raleigh, Tess will work every day with legislators of both parties to find real solutions to the threats faced by our rural hospitals and health care facilities. 


Some of the most pressing health issues for the citizens of this district are mental health and substance abuse. Tess will advocate for policies that increase resources to expand access to mental health care, including real solutions to expand access to mental healthcare, a crucial component of treating addiction.
