About Bill

Bill’s life has been one of service as a doctor and as an elected official. He grew up in Baton Rouge and attended LSU and LSU Medical School. In 1990, he joined LSU Medical School, teaching medical students and residents and treating the uninsured. He continues to teach and see patients at LSU Clinics when he is not in Washington, D.C.

La vie de Bill a été celle marquée de services en tant que médecin et élu du peuple. Il a grandi à Baton Rouge où il avait fait ses études médicales, précisément à LSU. En 1985, il devient enseignant dans la même école médicale. Médecin traitant, il s’occupe des malades assurés et non assurés. Jusqu'aujourd'hui, Dr. Cassidy continue d'enseigner et de s'occuper des patients dans les cliniques de Baton Rouge quand il n'est pas à Washington DC. La préoccupation majeure du Dr. Cassidy vis-à-vis des individus et familles sans assurance-santé l'a amené non seulement à cofondater une clinique pour les travailleurs sans assurance-santé, mais aussi à créer un partenariat public-privé qui a permis de vacciner 36.000 élèves de la 10ème Paroisse contre l'hépatite B. Ce même partenariat a aidé une équipe de bénévoles à transformer un Kmart abandonné en un hôpital de circonstance pour la prise en charge des évacuées des calamités naturelles, comme l'ouragan Katrina de 2005.
