Our community cannot function without the good health of its members. With higher rates of obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and cancer, we need to work harder on prevention.
Helal’s goals for City Council District 32:
- Improve the quality of vegetables and fruits in schools.
- Use our exercise programs as a way to conquer childhood obesity.
- Encourage early testing for cancer.
- Improve local parks and outdoor spaces so that people have access to clean and safe areas for exercise and recreation.
