Eric Adams on Health Care



I say to unvaccinated: stop it; it's time to get vaccinated

We can't live through variants. We spent $11 trillion on COVID and we don't have another $11 trillion. So our lives can't be based on what's the new variant. No. We have to figure out, how do we adjust? And I say to those who are not vaccinated: stop it. It's time to get vaccinated. It's time to have the booster shots. You're endangering yourself and you're endangering the public and your family as well.

After diabetes diagnosis, led proactive public health effort

Eric became a national leader on public health policy after learning he had developed Type 2 diabetes. Following his diagnosis, Eric completely changed his diet and his body, reversing the disease and launching a personal mission to educate New Yorkers about preventative care and wellness. His work led to successful proactive public health efforts across the city and increased education in schools and with high-risk populations in lower-income areas.

Expand telehealth to reduce the number of hospital visits

We must expand telemedicine to reduce emergency room overcrowding like we experienced at the height of the pandemic, cut costs--especially for uninsured or underinsured people--and empower patients to take control of their health care.
