Affordable and Accessible Health Care
San Francisco has been a leader in providing access to adequate health care — and still, there is work to be done to address the gaps in care and coverage.
Increase Access to Health Care
Connie will push for an inventory of neighborhood public health clinics to ensure equitable services throughout the City, improvement of services, expansion access to dental coverage and mental health services, and the creation of a language access hotline for non-emergency health care for the City’s immigrant residents.
Expand Local Public Health Care Program
Connie supports a universal healthcare system, and specifically a single payer system such as Medicare for All with appropriate transparency and accountability measures to ensure the focus is on providing high quality care for everyone. Connie understands the importance of HealthySF and, as supervisor, would work to expand the program.
