    Elizabeth Steiner-Hayward
    Oregon State Senator

    Senator for District 17 (NW Portland and Beaverton). She is a physician practicing Family Medicine at OHSU. Her 35 years of experience in healthcare professions have given me a breadth of understanding of state systems that can be transferred to other large systems and agencies in our state government. She's also learned through her time in elected office that in order to make Oregon the healthiest state, we need Oregonians to be well educated, have affordable housing and access to nutritious foods, and need a stable economy to rely on.

    In 2011, I decided to run for office because I wanted to make Oregon the healthiest state in the nation. In my tenure as your State Senator, I've had many accomplishments toward that goal. These include establishing Oregon's CCO system which streamlines and integrates health systems to deliver healthcare more efficiently, and increasing Oregon's vaccination rates. I have also championed policies that work to improve health outcomes for Oregonians by intervening upstream, such as raising the legal age for purchasing tobacco products to 21 and establishing the nation's first state-wide universally-offered nurse home visiting program.

    When I'm not serving in the Legislature, I am a physician practicing Family Medicine at OHSU. My 35 years of experience in healthcare professions have given me a breadth of understanding of state systems that can be transferred to other large systems and agencies in our state government. I've also learned through my time in elected office that in order to make Oregon the healthiest state, we need Oregonians to be well educated, have affordable housing and access to nutritious foods, and need a stable economy to rely on. With my experience as a health care provider and a vision to create the healthiest state in the nation, I continue to work on bridging the gaps where health care, human services, education, and public safety meet.
