• I will fight for the stabilization of the Cook County Health and Hospital Systems.

 

• I believe that in order to develop healthy communities, Cook County must implement a service delivery system that focuses on preventive health strategies while providing primary health care service for the Citizens of Cook County.

 

• I understand that access to mental health treatment is one of the most critical issues facing our county. I am committed to securing resources to facilitate treatment for all residents in our community who are living with mental illness.

 

• Everyday more and more of our citizen are impacted by substance abuse- illegal drugs, including heroin, opioids and other prescription drugs. I will fight to support our Cook County Health and Hospital System in providing proper care and services.

 

• Gun violence itself is a health care issue. Gun violence is a threat to our public health, and expanding access to, and quality of, mental health care services will help reduce the threat of gun violence and gun suicides.
