Healthcare and Human Services for All
The COVID19 pandemic has proven the vulnerability and frailty of the human body and mind. Our physical, mental and emotional health and well-being have experienced unusual stress and trauma while dealing with an unknown virus, isolation and uncertainty.
In our modern world, healthcare and human services should be a basic human right.
- No child should go to school hungry.
- No man with [dis]abilities should be denied opportunities to live a productive life.
- No woman should be deprived of her right to confidential health and medical services.
- No individual should be rejected from insurance or treatment due to a pre-existing condition.
Stress and trauma from life situations—poverty, gentrification, racism, inflation, and job loss—are wreaking havoc for some of our friends and neighbors. We need and I support further investment in our public health care system, and I am a proponent of healthcare for all.
When elected to the NC House, I will focus on coordinating with our county and municipal governments to prevent evictions, assist elderly households in need, and end homelessness. My aim is to assure that our women, men and children in Caswell and Orange Counties have the fundamental health and human services they need to thrive and be well.
