Health Care Issues
Saturday at our BUILD class we discussed issues of health care in impoverished communities with Bruce Miller, COO/CFO of the Lawndale Christian Health Center. He talked about the growing number of undocumented immigrants who are now eligible for medical coverage through the state "AllKids" program, but often don't want to give their information for fear of being deported. Yesterday's Tribune carried at article about that very issue. I'm thankful to have a ministry in our community like Lawndale that provides health care for $15 a visit, no questions asked.
