U.S. Congress Illinios District 14

A native of Naperville, Underwood is a registered nurse, with hands-on experience in America’s health care industry. She was appointed by President Obama to serve as a senior advisor at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where she helped implement the Affordable Care Act, broadening access for those on Medicare, improving health care quality, and reforming private insurance.

Lauren knows first-hand the real-life importance of quality, affordable health care for working families and their children, both from her career in health care and as a person living with a pre-existing condition. Lauren has worked to expand access, most recently working with a Medicaid plan in Chicago to ensure that it provided high-quality, cost-efficient care. When Republican Rep. Randy Hultgren voted to take away health care from millions of Americans, Lauren stepped up—and Illinois' 14th District residents need her fighting for them in Washington.
