Discussions with Decisionmakers: Sen. Donnie Chesteen

Discussions with Decisionmakers

What first prompted you to consider running office?

In 2010, I felt a call to step into the political arena.

How does your background help serve you on the Healthcare Committee and also the Legislature?

I had a career in medical sales, I feel as if that set me up. It is important to serve those that need help.

What are some of your legislative priorities this term?

My main priority has been to provide broadband to rural areas.

If you could change anything about our state’s health care system, what would it be?

There should be more education on topics such as obesity or diabetes and it would serve the state of Alabama tremendously in helping control these issues.

How can the Medical Association – and physicians statewide – help you address Alabama’s health challenges?

I am not an expert in healthcare, so it is important that I speak with our physicians to further understand important health issues, and how to solve them.
