Our healthcare system has continuously become provider focused and has lost the patient care and accessibility necessary for effective healthcare. I believe that this must change, and that healthcare should be more accessible to Michiganders. It is time to bring the focus of healthcare back on the patient and put the providers back in the shadows.
In an effort to provide quality healthcare to my constituents and move Michigan closer to providing everyone in our state access to quality healthcare I have introduced the following resolution and bills…
House Resolution 84: asks the United States Congress to add bottled water to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children.
Presently, access to safe and clean drinking water remains a concern for many communities across Michigan and the entire United States. Lead and other substances contaminant our drinking water and women, infants, and children are vulnerable to the negative impacts of contaminated water. Parents who have children with dairy allergies often need water to prepare their babies formula. Ensuring that families who depend on the WIC program have access to clean water is critical to equitable healthcare.
House Bill 4776: would give tax credits to small businesses for providing personal protection equipment to fight against COVID-19 and keep us all safe.
House resolution 46 recognizes March as Brain Injury Awareness Month.
