Since I was elected to the state Assembly in 2016, I’ve devoted much of my efforts and advocacy to improving health care for families and children in the Central Valley and California.

As an emergency room doctor, I saw the vital need for all families to have access to quality care. The 31st Assembly District, which covers much of Fresno County and which I represent in the Legislature, includes some of the state’s most disadvantaged and impoverished communities. I saw too many patients ailing from diabetes, obesity, asthma, heart disease, opioid addiction and other illnesses. I saw how these conditions burdened families emotionally and financially. Watching these families struggle to gain access to medical care and pay for it drove me from the ER to the Assembly.

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Dr. Joaquin Arambula (D-Fresno) rallied with home cooks at the state Capitol in support of his Assembly Bill 626, which allows home cooks to operate out of their homes, making it easier to start a small business. “Too often, women, immigrants, and people of color who have skill sets that we should be able to embrace and celebrate have not been able to capitalize and profit off of them,” Assemblymember Arambula said. “This bill will allow us to do that for the first time.” To learn more, watch this Assembly Access video.
