“Health care is a real need for our state, and it comes down to the personal health of so many of our citizens,” Lamb said. “None of us want a government so big that it tells you when you can or cannot eat the Twinkie. That government is too big.”
Lamb said it's important for experts in health care in Oklahoma to collaborate on what are the best actions to take to best serve the needs of the state's residents, he said.
Lamb said he holds several town hall meetings across Oklahoma, especially in small towns and in rural Oklahoma.
He hears similar things in communities across the state — people are concerned about access to quality care.
“We have those common goals, and we have to speak advice on how we address them to move our state forward and make sure we have a thriving robust rural Oklahoma,” he said.
