It’s time to put the power back to the source of our strength as a union: into the hands of members like you. Together, we can win strong contracts, demand social justice, and ensure all our needs are met during this deadly pandemic.

Working across New York H+H hospitals to create a strong team during contract negotiations, we were able to win strong contracts and stage peaceful demonstrations across the city in support of Black Lives Matter.

CIR gives us the leverage to challenge how medicine, health, and wellness are engendered within our current society, and by advocating for the Housestaff of our nation, we move one step closer to improving the lives of the neglected and disenfranchised communities we took an oath to serve. Let us not forget disease is the manifestation of an oppressive system, and I am committed to using my skills as a union leader to build on the victories to the labor movement to make our world a better place for all.  La union hace la fuerza, pero la participación hace la diferencia!

I want local chapters to have stronger relationship-focused organizing that would facilitate mobilization and escalation. I’m committed to supporting CIR’s involvement in advocating for Medicare for All at both state and federal levels.

My vision for CIR is to help build a democratically-run union – one that is grounded in member-led organizing, and takes a stand on issues that matter to resident physicians.
