Trump’s leadership on COVID-19 is ineffective and contrary to our values of integrity, honor and selfless service. Biden is the leader for our time.

Like all physician leaders and graduates of the United States Military Academy (West Point), Naval Academy, and Air Force Academy, I was trained to lead America’s sons and daughters. Today I write on behalf of all of us who feel compelled to step forward in response to the profound crisis that COVID-19 has created.  

As physicians, we see extraordinary challenges. We share firsthand the pain of our patients’ families who mourn avoidable deaths. We treat the acutely ill and the chronic sufferers of COVID-19. We daily face mental health challenges, both our own and those of our patients, made worse by the ongoing assault on health care options for those in the greatest need.
