I am a doctor, husband, and father. I have been a family physician for over twenty years, or as long as I have been a member of the Reform Party.
My priority as member of the Riigikogu is to make sure that everyone in Estonia receives timely treatment and has an individual health protection and treatment plan. I intend to review the bases for funding health care as well as the responsibilities of the state in providing health care services.
I want to support youth sports and hobby groups, and have my say in developing education and culture.
