Alumni Spotlight - Steven Miles, M.D.
A career built on compassion
In 1999, Steven Miles, M.D., decided to run for the U.S. Senate. His central concern? Affordable health care. Too many people, as he saw it, were forgoing critical medical care because they couldn’t afford it. So the University of Minnesota professor and physician entered the race as a Democrat and began touring the state to solicit votes.
