As a physician with a master’s degree in public health, Dr. Michelle Au knows prescriptions and procedures can’t solve the systemic, underlying inequalities and barriers to access in our healthcare system. With a deep knowledge of patient needs and the public policy implications of our healthcare laws, Dr. Au is uniquely qualified to improve health care for all people in Georgia.
She believes reproductive care is healthcare, period. Dr. Au is keenly motivated to improve the deplorable maternal health outcomes in Georgia and will work to improve access to, affordability of, and funding for all aspects of reproductive healthcare. She will fight tenaciously to protect a women’s right to make her own healthcare decisions.
In the legislature, Dr. Au will fight for expanding Medicaid so that more Georgians can afford to go to the doctor and will continue to advocate for Medicaid expansion to cover women and children’s health, as well as expanding the window of postpartum coverage under Medicaid provisions.
