Ep. 56 Legislative Update


Today we’re joined by three trailblazing advocates who are focused on improving health and well-being in Arizona using a little tool called public policy. If you’re a frequent listener of these podcasts, the idea that ‘health is more than healthcare’ shouldn’t be a new concept to you. What may be less intuitive, however, is how this concept comes to life through public policy – specifically, through state legislation. So today, we’re reflecting on the 2021 legislative session in Arizona, with a particular focus on housing, food and children’s health. If, upon hearing the word “legislation,” you felt your eyes start to roll into the back of your head, don’t worry, for you are not alone. It’s no secret that the very idea of legislation or working with a state legislature can cause many of us to shy away, yawn or stare blankly into the distance, but our guests today highlight inspiring real-world experiences that demystify lawmaking and show the great power of policy to improve community health. If there’s one thing to take home from this conversation, it’s a reminder that health isn’t simply determined by what’s within us, it’s also governed by what’s around us. Let’s dive in.
