Meet Charles Anthony
Candidate US Congress Maryland - 3
Charles Anthony was born in Point Pleasant, West Virginia in 1953 and lived there until 1965 when his family moved to the Huntington, West Virginia area. He attended Marshall University and received his teaching degree in Social Studies and History in 1975 and received his Commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps. That was the beginning of his Health Care Administration career, and since then, he has not looked back. He retired from the Army Reserves in 1998 as a Lieutenant Colonel and retired as a Federal Employee from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 2009 as an Assistant Administrator for the Department of Surgery. He was a graduate of the Command and General Staff College and his graduate work was in Healthcare Administration.
As a retired civilian Federal Employee and as a retired Army Lt. Colonel whose specialty was running hospitals, Charles Anthony knows that there are a lot of problems in medicine today. However, he has also seen many great advancements that have been made. America's health care delivery system is a mess and is too expensive, but our health care is second to none!
We want to make sure that we have the best healthcare in the world, but that it is also affordable. The opioid epidemic killed more people last year in America than died in Vietnam in 14 years. Much of this comes back to pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Join Charles Anthony as we reform medicine so that it is focused on a high quality of life while also making it affordable!
