Auburn’s Dr. Stephen Anderson, Emergency Room Doctor, Endorses Dr. Shannon Hader for Congress

Auburn – Emergency Medicine Doctor and Treasurer of the American College of Emergency Physicians, Dr. Stephen Anderson has given Dr. Shannon Hader his sole endorsement in Washington’s 8th Congressional District primary.

Dr. Anderson endorsed Hader in the following letter:

Dear Shannon,

Good Luck!

As a practicing Emergency Medicine Doctor for over 32 years in Auburn, my main mission is working to ensure all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care. This passion is why I’m a member of the Board of Directors of the National American College of Emergency Physicians (the 38,000 EM doctors who staff the ERs of America). It’s my role to fight politically and economically for policies and leadership that move America’s health care forward.

In my life in the ER, I see daily the heroes who help all our community in their moments of greatest need. I also see the devastation of those who don’t have access to quality care in a timely fashion, therefore getting sicker and harder to rescue from their long-term debilities.

In all my years of practice and advocacy, I have never met a person more strategically trained and passionately motivated to go to Washington D.C. and fight for our future health. As a scientist, a doctor, a student of population health, and a bi-partisan director of global budgets and mission, Dr. Hader is the voice, at exactly the critical moment, we need in D.C. From the opioid crisis in Auburn, to grasping the focus it takes to save millions of lives around the globe, we have never had the chance to send someone so qualified to speak reason and real solutions in our Capital.

I could not endorse anyone so strongly at this moment in our nation’s health crisis than Shannon Hader, MD.


Dr. Stephen H. Anderson MD
Treasurer, American College of Emergency Physicians.

“Dr. Anderson really is, and has been, at the front line of where many of our failures to fully address health issues show up: at the emergency room,” said Dr. Hader. “And he’s dedicated his time to local and national leadership to fix the policy issues that are broken. I absolutely welcome and appreciate his confidence in me – and look forward to partnering with him to improve the health of our neighbors!”
