Kayser Enneking, MD, grew up in Gainesville, Florida and is a graduate of Gainesville High School. She and her husband, Mark Scarborough, MD are lifelong friends and both graduates of the UF College of Medicine. After a residency in Texas and fellowship at Harvard, they moved back to Gainesville, where they work for the University of Florida and started a family.
Kayser has been a leader at the national and local level advocating for improving quality and efficiency of our health care systems. Her work at UF Health as a practicing physician and health care leader have strengthened the quality of care provided to patients in this district. As a community leader, Kayser has visited communities throughout North-Central Florida and saw first-hand the disparities in our health care system.
Now, Kayser is running for the Florida State House because she believes improvements to our health care system start with making sure everyone has access to quality health care. That starts with expanding Medicaid in our state. She understands that leadership is about guiding change, not just announcing something doesn’t work. Her mission now, as it always has been, is to improve the lives those she serves.
Two decades of a Republican trifecta in Tallahassee has failed to improve the lives of Floridians; it’s time for new leadership in the legislature.
