Rachel Curley

Democracy Associate for Public Citizen's Congress Watch Division

Rachel Curley graduated from Indiana University Bloomington with a B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy. She went on to serve as an executive intern for the Center for American Progress before becoming the program coordinator for Doctors for America. Curley has led the charge on several of DFA’s major campaigns, including Medicaid expansion in the states, helping Supreme Court justices understand the impact of King v. Burwell, and lifting the N.R.A.-advocated Congressional ban on CDC gun violence research. As someone who was eager to take part in the implementation of Obamacare when it was first rolled out yet was too squeamish to become a doctor, Curley is passionate about getting big money out of politics and minimizing the influence that the health care industry has over the government's health care policy decisions.
