I would like to introduce an organization that is extremely important to the Chicago community – Community Health. I support Community Health and its mission as a board member, contributions in kind, and direct cash donations.
Healthcare is expensive and costly. I can tell you from personal experience that many individuals go without badly needed primary care services as a result of the expense.
A Great Cause: Free Health Clinic
On that note, I have had the privilege of working for a great organization – Community Health Free Clinic – which provides free healthcare services to the underserved and uninsured. If you have 2 minutes, I would appreciate you watching this short video explaining just how important this free clinic is to the community, and what you can do to help.
To all my clients, friends, and loyal readers, if you take the time to donate $500, I provide you with a free copy of my healthcare advocacy book – Personal Healthcare Portfolio: Your Personal Health & Wellness Record (a $20 value). If you donate $1,000 you will receive a copy of all three of my books (PHP, Healthcare Fraud: Audit & Detection Guide, and Electronic Health Records: Auditing & Detecting – a $130 value).
To donate to Community Health please click here. Remember, unlike other organizations who have large overhead costs, $.97 of every $1 donated goes directly to patients in need. Your money matters.

This is an excellent program. I am glad that good people like yourself are giving their time and effort to help those who need it most. if more communities followed this example, Medical costs at hospitals and clinics might actually come down. Thank you!

Why doesn’t Congress (the Republicans) put ALL hathelcare up for bids and award one company ALL the hathelcare business to the complete exclusion of all others. That would first mean only one company full of rich executives, second all eyes (especially the losing bidders’) would be on that company to deliver hathelcare at the best price, and third the winning bidder would fully embrace the “single payer” strategy.
