Healthy Michigan, Healthy Economy

“I believe one of the principal duties of any governor is to protect and promote the health and wellbeing of our state’s residents.” – Governor Whitmer

The health of every Michigander is affected by factors ranging from genetics, to the environment, the economy and government policies. These factors influence both personal choices and access to health-related services. Establishing and maintaining the public health must include a new way of thinking that shapes the goals and duties of every agency of state government.

Improving health and quality of life for all Michiganders is a top economic priority for our state.

Everyone in Michigan has a right to quality health care they can afford. We must get to work to achieve greater health outcomes by focusing on:

  • Making health care more affordable
  • Expanding access to health care
  • Improving quality
  • Investing in public health
