Kyle Emmett Meraz
Kyle is a Registered Nurse working in the Intensive Care Unit at his county hospital. As a nurse, his job is to care for and to advocate for his patients. This healthcare advocacy is what he plans to bring to the State House in Oklahoma.
In his job, Kyle helps to treat patients who can not afford their medications because drug prices are too expensive. He helps to care for patients who are worried about their financial future after being hospitalized. Kyle has seen the strain the current healthcare system puts on patients and he is actively fighting to make the system better.
As a community organizer, Kyle has fought for Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma which will go to a state vote at the end of June 2020. He will fight for nurse-to-patient ratios, prescription price capping, expanding the budget for rural hospitals, and primary/preventative care funding.
Kyle is a Registered Nurse. Healthcare is his job. Now he is fighting to provide a better healthcare system for all of Oklahoma.
