Health Week – An Interview with Danny Avula

This week we sit down with Danny Avula – Richmond City Health District Director and Henrico County Acting Director about Health Week.

Housing is one of the most efficient ways to improve health. Where we live and who we live alongside determines whether we have access to good jobs, reliable transportation, quality schools, grocery stores that offer fresh produce, and space for recreation and community. 

Regardless of income, neighborhood, education level, or race, our quality of life depends on access to a healthy, safe, and sustainable home. We cannot move forward as a city until we address barriers preventing so many families from this cornerstone of thriving. 

Questions: email George.Jones or contact your council member.
