Gillian spent 20+ years serving the people of Wisconsin and helping women in the fight against breast cancer. She has seen, up close and personal, the difference that access to quality health care can make. Just before she turned 2, her dad passed away suddenly due to complications from an untreated childhood disease — untreated because his family couldn’t afford health care. Then, when she was 9 years old, her brother Tom was born more than three months premature. He spent the first 3 months of his life in the NICU, requiring numerous life-saving surgeries. Gillian knew then that she wanted to be a doctor, so she could help people be their happiest, healthiest selves.
Through more than 20 years in medicine and public health, Dr. Battino has proven her commitment to public service, integrity, honesty, and accountability. Gillian developed and oversaw breast cancer screening programs in some of the most impoverished nations in the Western Hemisphere. Recently, she fought for mothers and children during the Zika epidemic in Nicaragua and Guyana. Throughout her practice, she saw that providing medical care alone wasn’t enough to help every person be their healthiest, happiest self, because of injustices inside and outside the health care system. In her daily conversations with patients, they often told her they were more terrified of financial ruin than breast cancer. Now, Dr. Battino is ready to advocate for all Wisconsinites with the dedication and tenacity she gives her patients.
Along with dedicating her life to public service through health care and public health work, Gillian has been a life-long advocate for equity and racial justice. Dr. Battino is profoundly committed to advancing equity through innovation, empowerment, and leadership development. She focused her work on developing respectful, compassionate, and ethically sound coalitions to better represent those who have been underserved in our society.
In addition to her medical and professional work, Dr. Battino raised a family of 6 children in Wausau, Wisconsin with her husband of 25 years, Benjamin Battino, MD. As a mother, doctor, and public health advocate, Dr. Battino has demonstrated the real-world experience and empathy needed to represent Wisconsin in the United States Senate.
It’s time for a new kind of leadership in Wisconsin. Gillian built her career on integrity, advocacy, and action, and she’s ready to put that skill set to work in the U.S. Senate. She’s running to be the first Democratic woman physician in the Senate, and with a voice of reason and conscience, she will fight for our dignity, health, and opportunity. It’s what Gillian always has and always will fight for.
