A 78-year-old year old female wrote TJC to share her thoughts on health justice. She is a retired healthcare provider and is enrolled in Medicare.
“By the grace of God, I have always had access to healthcare, which is of critical importance to all. Preventative care is urgent!” She shared that during her time in the medical field, she learned that people often are forced to choose between going to medical appointments or keeping their jobs. The writer also noted that there are people who have difficulty with transportation to get healthcare and stated that “this is a dangerous problem.”
She would like her politicians to know that “The lives of those in desperate need of healthcare are as important as the lives of our politicians' families.”
