Emmabella is a strong advocate for healthcare being a human right. Emmabella heads the State of Florida as Chapter Leader for the #insulin4all movement lead by T1International, with the aim to unite both the Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes community world wide in fighting for access to diabetes supplies, care, and treatment for everyone living with this auto-immune disease.
This 2020 legislative session Emmabella lobbied for SB116/HB109 that would cap insulin co-pay prices at $100 for a 30-day supply for insured Floridians. Not only did Emmabella aid in writing this bill as a part of her role, but she has also been part of the team to present it at committee hearings that have lead to unanimous approval in the Senate Banking and Insurance Committees.
Through this process, Emmabella has learned that "the most sustainable change in our country happens right at our State Legislature."
