Health   Plan

  1. Hold Harlem Hospital accountable to keep their commitment to expand their facilities, including new Urgent Cares and clinics.

  2. Provide free sunscreen in NYC parks and playgrounds to reduce risk of cancer as suggested in a recent report from NYC Comptroller Scott M. Stringer. 

  3. Support universal health care for all New Yorkers. Specifically, review outcomes from the Direct Access pilot that serves 1,000 immigrant New Yorkers, who are excluded from federal and state insurance programs, with reliable and coordinated access to low-cost healthcare. Using information and learning from the pilot, work with the community to explore pilot expansion. 

  4. Bring and expand mobile health clinics that provide preventative care and flu shots to families with small children and seniors.
