Our Two-part Challenge to Presidential Candidates

As the First in the Nation Primary approaches, the New Hampshire Medical Society is issuing a challenge to our presidential candidates. This first part is a request to weigh in on important issues related to the health and well being of Granite Staters. We’ll be posting their responses on this site as they come in.  The second part will allow them to demonstrate their presidential dexterity and timber.

The NH Medical Society was founded 225 years ago in 1791 by Dr. Josiah Bartlett, one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence and New Hampshire’s first constitutionally-elected Governor.

More recently, you may remember President Josiah “Jed” Bartlet[t] from the TV show, The West Wing (as played by Martin Sheen) who was said to be a direct descendent of Dr. Bartlett and former New Hampshire governor. He mastered what is called the “jacket flip” that according to Granite State lore was passed down the generations from Dr. Bartlett. We’re challenging the presidential candidates and Granite Staters to show us their jacket flip on video. Check out the supercut video of his jacket flips.

See the candidate responses to health care issues in the Granite State.
