Reno Pastor And School Board Member Talks Healthcare At DNC

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Dr. Angie Taylor — a Reno pastor and school board trustee — addressed the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday evening as part of a round-robin discussion on healthcare and the 2020 election.

She told former Vice President Joe Biden that she was backing him due to his support for the Affordable Care Act. After battling breast cancer, Taylor became one of Reno's most vocal advocates for universal access to healthcare.

While she was undergoing treatment, a childhood friend who lacked health insurance was also diagnosed with breast cancer, giving her a first-hand understanding of the importance of healthcare access.
