It’s Kamala.

In a historic moment yesterday, California Senator Kamala Harris was named as Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick.  
 
The daughter of immigrants from India and Jamaica, Harris is the first Black woman to be nominated for national office by a major party.     
 
But where does the former prosecutor stand on health issues?
 
Harris' position on health care may have been the death knell of her unsuccessful presidential campaign. After doubling down to support eliminating private health insurance, she quickly backtracked, raising questions about her policy chops, POLITICO reports.
 
In recent months, she has been front and center on race and social justice, calling for police reform and a ban on evictions and foreclosures amid the pandemic, and introducing police accountability legislation, the New York Times reports.
 
Harris has also called for new investments to tackle America’s maternal mortality crisis, which disproportionately affects Black women.
