Nan Hayworth, M.D., is the only woman physician in history to be elected a voting Member of the House of Representatives, serving the 19th District of New York in the 112th Congress.
As a freshman Member of the House Majority, Nan was privileged to be assigned to the House Financial Services Committee; she also had the honor of being chosen by Speaker Boehner to serve on two House-Senate Conference Committees. She was recognized by environmental groups, including the Sierra Club, League of Conservation Voters, Defenders of Wildlife, and Wilderness Society, for her efforts to protect the environment.
Nan is a frequent guest on radio and television, the latter including regular appearances on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” and Fox News Channel’s 2016 election coverage.
A board-certified ophthalmologist, Nan practiced for 16 years in Mount Kisco, New York, before becoming a vice president and medical director at Cline Davis & Mann, a healthcare communications agency. Currently, she serves as a Strategic Business Development Advisor for Pilot Growth Equity. Nan sits on the boards of several nonprofits, and she is an inaugural member of the Princeton University Department of Politics Advisory Council.
