Making Health Happen… Together!
Fresno Building Healthy Communities is a coalition of residents, young people and community-based organizations working together to foster and encourage thriving communities where all children and families can live healthy, safe and productive lives.
Central, southeast and southwest Fresno residents are coming together to address critical issues in order to create #OneHealthyFresno for all.
It’s Time to Truly Cover Everyone!
1.4 million undocumented Californians are locked out of access to affordable, quality health care. Diana’s parents, Antonio and Ramona, pay their taxes and work tirelessly. Antonio and Ramona’s only option is to persevere through painful illnesses and ailments because they are denied access to affordable health coverage due to their immigration status. We need #Health4All because no one should be forced to suffer and live in pain.
It is time to truly cover everyone. #HealthAndJustice4All
