1 in 4 kids don't have health care
Joyce Caine sent me a link to this CBS news article about kids and health care. It seems to me that our country needs to make at least basic health care available to all. This article indicates that part of the problem is lack of transportation to health care facilities. This highlights the need for more community health centers. Under Todd Stroger, Cook County is closing more than half of the community health centers and cutting off much of the funding for Stroger Hospital. Here's another link from Joyce about the lack of dental care for kids.
