  • California Health Report: Jan 30, 2019

    In their op-ed, PI's Juiet Sims and Matt Willis from Marin County explore funding for community-level prevention initiatives in California going forward. While they applaud Governor Newsom's  budgest proposals for paid family leave, education, water safety and housing, they argue that since funding from the federal Prevention and Public Health Fund—created in 2010 as part of the ACA—is precarious, CA should create a state Wellness Trust. Citing Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Oklahoma as examples of states with successful Wellness Trusts, the authors suggest that California seed the Trust with funds from soda taxes, and they lay out some basic principles for how to structure this new potential funding stream.
