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.
