In this week’s #AbbieForMayor #CoffeeClub I discuss how I stay healthy and the health of Kokomo. 

We know that access to education, from early childhood to beyond high school, leads to good jobs, retirement savings, healthy choices, and longer life expectancy.

By focusing on childhood poverty, the mayor’s office can move the needle toward a healthier community. In the past, we’ve approached the issue of childhood poverty through individual programs and as if everyone’s needs are the same; they are not. Every family has a different set of barriers. We must use multifaceted approaches to address childhood poverty that are nimble enough to meet each family’s needs and utilize human services networks in an effective way.

Extending connectivity of parks, trails, and neighborhoods can also help fight for better health outcomes as we currently rank in the bottom 20 of 92 counties. I will focus on places where people naturally gather, increasing access to parks and green space as a means to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and symptoms of type 2 diabetes. I will assess the usage of parks to determine where investments should be made to leverage their ability to improve mental and physical health.
