Where I Stand

As a member of the Council’s Committee on Health, I am continually working to foster healthy communities in the District. I believe in a comprehensive approach to public health whether that’s through healthy food access, supporting early child development, and environmental safety, or lowering the costs of care. I believe that everyone in the District, from newborns to seniors should have access to high-quality services and supports that create a strong foundation of health. That’s why I’ve worked to expand access to home visiting services that help new parents and children thrive, lowered health care barriers for our immigrant families, and reduced prescription drug prices.
