Healthy Families

I will build on my work as a health advocate to introduce a package of proposals to significantly increase the health of Northeast Valley Residents.  

I will pursue improving food choices at local markets, strengthening primary care options for the newly-insured and drive down insurance costs for small business owners and individual insurance customers.  I have worked to expand food options for families, I have worked to improve coordination between county departments and I understand the factors that drive up the cost of insurance.  We can reduce the health disparities facing people of color while lowering the cost for everyone through prevention, strong handoffs between health care providers and 21st century modernization of billing, payment and records.
