It's time to broaden support for single payer health system reform in Congress beyond one party.  For three decades, Dr. Jarvis has actively proposed, pursued, and explained single payer health system reform to audiences across the country.  He has written a book (The Purple World: Healing the Harm in American Health Care) about how he transformed from conservative, Republican doctor to single payer activist, including a term of service on the Board of Directors for PNHP (Physicians for a National Health Program).  Donate to the campaign and receive a copy of the book as a gift from Dr. Jarvis.

Joseph Q. Jarvis MD MSPH graduated from Brigham Young University (1978, BA-English) and the University of Utah School of Medicine (1982-MD; 1986-MSPH) and completed graduate training in public health, family practice, and environmental medicine.  He has practiced primary care in a federally qualified health center, served as a federal (OSHA) and state (Colorado, Nevada) public health officer, and been on the faculties of schools of medicine in Utah, Nevada, and Colorado.  Dr. Jarvis has published a number of articles in the peer-reviewed medical literature and produced two books: 2018-The Purple World: Healing the Harm in American Health Care; 2019-What the Single Eye Sees; Faith, Hope, Charity and the Pursuit of Discipleship.  He is married with 5 children and 7 grandchildren.

Dr. Jarvis will seek the nomination of the United Utah Party for the US House of Representatives in Utah's 2nd Congressional District.  He resigned from the Republican Party the day Mr. Trump was officially nominated for President in 2016.  Mr. Trump's policy of indiscriminately arresting working people for alleged immigration violations while they are at work fomented Jarvis' determination to campaign for Congress.  Partisan bickering is depriving Americans of the basis for prosperity, which is the rule of law.  Dr. Jarvis will serve as an independent in Congress, using the best ideas, without regard to origin, to solve the perplexing problems of the country.
