Take Action: Your Stories Can Make All the Difference!

Posted on December 14

Where do you go for your primary care? Have you ever felt the ER was your only way to see a doctor? Have you ever had a bad experience trying to access health care? Are your medical bills more than you can handle?

The Lakeview Action Coalition is working to improve acces to quality, affordable, primary, and specialty care in our community. Chicago Women's Health Center is excited to be helping out with this campaign and we need your help. We want to hear your stories!

Hospitals get big tax breaks that they are supposed to give back to the community in the form of free care. However, many hospitals are not living up to their charitable obligations. The Fair Care Coalition is working on legislation in Ilinois that would increase access to charity care at out local hospitals and ensure that tax payers are getting a benefit from these tax breaks. Your story can help create a more equitable and accessible health care system!

If you, or someone you know, can answer yes to the questions above, or to learn more about this campaign, please contact Hannah Gelder from the Lakeview Action Coalition at hgelder@lakeviewaction.org. We are also collecting stories here at Chicago Women's Health Center!
