I’m a musician and a health kinesiology practitioner, I live in Middlebury, and I’m a member of the Put People First Campaign.
I’m affected by the health care crisis because I have ongoing health problems and I can’t afford the care I need. I had a toothache for about a year, and it was extracted simply because I didn’t have money to have root canal work done.
Now there’s another one on the bottom where I do need dental care but I’m in the same position again for another tooth. We need equitable health care financing because healthcare is a right.
I hope others in the community will become fully aware that it’s possible for everyone to have the health care they need. We’re all in this together so we all need to be actively participating!
I encourage everyone to contact their legislators and pariticipate in budget hearings to show our government another system is possible.
