On October 20, the SCSH Dems Club invited the community to come hear from our Congressman, Dr. Raul Ruiz. Dr. Ruiz spoke with over 100 SCSH residents about his work in Congress and the challenges ahead.
Dr. Ruiz grew up in Coachella, and after earning several degrees from Harvard, returned, becoming both a community leader and an emergency physician. He was elected to Congress in 2013.
In Congress, Dr. Ruiz works to protect Medicare and Social Security and stands up for Veterans, especially where their healthcare is concerned. On July 14, 2022, the House passed legislation authored by Congressman Ruiz that addresses the military’s use of toxic burn pits and helps educate veterans on benefits they may be entitled to as a result of their service near burn pits.
The SCSH Dems Club thanks Congressman Ruiz for his service to our country and our district.
