  • Adoption of a K-12 health education curriculum to promote a culture of wellness
  • Implementation of protocols and evidence based practice models with the goal of reducing medical errors and adopting cost-effective delivery of health care
  • Increased support for volunteer firefighters and emergency responders
  • Practical career transition support for those displaced from employment due to adoption of single payer or other efficiencies
