These are Dr. Oz’s big plans after the Coronavirus Pandemic

Dr. OzIs on the campaign trail.

The medical professional and host of TDr. Oz on the Show officially announced on Nov. 30 that he is running for an open U.S. Senate seat in his home state of Pennsylvania. In a letter posted by the conservative D.C. publication the Washington Examiner, titled “Why I’m running to be a senator from Pennsylvania,” the 61-year-old shared what inspired him to make the career change.

He wrote, “We are mad at our government” and “against each other.” He said, “We have not managed the crises as well as previous generations.” The pandemic taught me that politics mixed with medicine can lead to politics rather than solutions. This is why I’m running for U.S. Senate to fix and heal the problem. 

Dr. Oz—whose full name is Mehmet Oz—explained that he is the child of immigrant parents who taught him to study hard and serve others. He said that he trained surgeons in saving lives and invented lifesaving equipment.
