Senator Monique Limón, 19th Senate district, tackling the Alzheimer’s crisis one Legislative Package at a time.
Episode 28: Senator Monique Limón was elected to the Senate in November 2020 and represents the 19th Senate district, which includes the County of Santa Barbara. Her election makes her the second woman and first Latina to be elected to represent Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties in the State Senate. Her focuses include health, women, consumer protection, natural disasters, and Alzheimer’s Awareness.
As Assemblymember, the Senator had the opportunity in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 to put forward a bill every year related to Alzheimer's. Her work advancing healthcare access earned her the 2017 Legislator of the Year recognition by the Alzheimer’s Association of California.
And in 2019, she was successful in putting the Healthy Brains Initiative forward, which allowed for funding to go to our continuums of cares in the counties to be able to do more outreach in relation to early prevention and early detection, which she feels is a top priority for those with Alzheimer’s and their families.
The Senator is a Superstar Advocate driven by her own experience with her beloved grandmother.
