Protection and Prevention of New York’s Health Crises

Governor Cuomo understands that ensuring wellness requires a holistic approach; one focused not only on providing access to quality, affordable medical care, but also promoting healthy lifestyles and ensuring a clean environment. However, critics have said that New York is not devoting enough money into actual prevention but instead the resources go into treatment once the health crisis has occurred (diabetes, heart disease, obesity, influenza, etc.).  What can be done to promote healthy lifestyle and food choices, more physical education and wellness programs in New York?
