Game Changer: Val Arkoosh

Valeria Arkoosh


Dr. Valerie Arkoosh isn’t a career politician. She is a physician, parent of three, and a community leader. As a practicing obstetric anesthesiologist, she has helped thousands of women of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds. In Congress, she would be a credible, vocal advocate for women’s healthcare and reproductive rights.


U.S. House of Representatives – Pennsylvania’s 13th Congressional District – Open Seat. Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, the incumbent and only woman in the entire Pennsylvania congressional delegation, is running for Governor.


WCF was proud to endorse Val very early in her race, making us one of her first national endorsements.

Val received a B.A. in economics from Northwestern University, a medical degree from the University of Nebraska College Of Medicine, and a Masters of Public Health degree, with a concentration in Health Policy, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Val is a Past-President of the National Physicians Alliance.

  • ★ 50/50 Representation

    Why should good government depend on only half of the nation’s human capital? WCF commits to 50/50 representation of women and men in elected office by 2028.

  • ★ Common Ground

    Common ground just means problems get solved more collaboratively, for the good of more people. It’s the bedrock of our leadership at home and abroad.

  • ★ Viability for Election

    It takes more than money to make a candidate worth electing. WCF looks for guts, street sense, situational awareness, resilience -- the full range of gifts a woman brings to the race.

  • ★ Non-Partisan

    A woman’s place is in every party, every elected office, at every level. Period.
