One of Penelope’s great milestone was an invitation to the statehouse where she received an opportunity to meet the president Donald Trump. She was one among seven women who got the opportunity to discuss health issues and some of the things that could be implemented to ensure that people all over the country gain access to health care services.
One of the things Penelope Kokkinides suggested was the increase of funds allocated to medical care, in 2011 funding was cut, and this was not a good move for Puerto Rico. According to Penelope fixing cuts that would not affect the medical sector negatively is a good move but it is also important to consider this cuts since reductions on the finance in Puerto Rico would lead to people migrating to the United States.
Soon after the meeting, the president Donald Trump released a notice that had included changes in Puerto Rico health system. Puerto Rico residents will now be able to access a better health care services in their surroundings. All thanks to Penelope Kokkinides strong will and voice to make a difference in the society.
