To me, politics is an extension of what I do in medicine.
— Tabare Vazquez
Practicing medicine is not only my vocation, it gives me an opportunity to continue to be in direct contact with people, to see them and hear their needs.
I invite you, from my sentiments, my convictions and my responsibilities, to work together in the construction of a Uruguay where being young is not suspicious, where aging is not a problem.
I was fascinated by each area I studied, whether neurology, urology or surgery.
The decisions and problems of Uruguay will be resolved by Uruguayans.
Because of my medical and ideological training, I am accustomed to saying that life is adaptation and symbiosis.
It's not enough to have economic growth. You have to distribute wealth throughout all of society.
