Equity in HealthNovember 15, 2017 |
by Cora Faith Walker
When I ran to represent Missouri’s 74th House District, I promised to continue to fight for access to quality healthcare. As a lawyer who specializes in health law and holds a Masters in Pubic Health, I know how important quality, affordable healthcare is to supporting local communities and developing economies. And now, as a member of the Missouri House of Representatives, I have listened to many Missourians who have shared their healthcare and insurance struggles with me. I have seen first-hand how health disparities affect the lives of Missouri’s most vulnerable citizens.
