"Our communities must have access to conditions to be physically healthy and mentally well"
About 1 in 10 people in the United States don’t have health insurance, a primary care provider nor can they afford the health care services and medications they need.
Strategies to increase insurance coverage rates are critical for making sure more people get important health care services, like preventive care, cancer screenings and treatment for chronic illnesses.
Distance can hinder access to healthcare providers in rural areas. Interventions to increase access and improve communication — in person or remotely — can help those with transportation needs.
I believe in building a county-wide "Health and Wellness Task Force" made up of our top health care professionals, paraprofessionals, and community members. The goal of this task force will be to engage in activities promoting the health and wellbeing of all residents. Topics of interest include nutrition, physical activity, adherence, medication management, and mental health.
