Health Reform Starts with a Health Revolution

While watching an awesome movie about Ernesto "Che" Guevara, I realized the movie emphasized Che Guevara's medical practice was a key tactic in mobilizing the "peasants" to support the revolution.

What does this have to do with Southeast/River East or East of the River? Well, us peasants are also being asked to mobilize to support one of the most drastic health reform bills in the history of the United States. Obama's health plan aims to address uninsured Americans which may overwhelmingly affect communities like Southeast who have radically disproportionate rates of uninsured residents. One way to mobilize is by spreading factual information about health reform and getting involved in community efforts to make people invested in their overall community health.

The community organization River East Emerging Leaders will discuss building a Health and Wellness Committee for Wards 7 and 8. Warning! This is not about promoting or rejecting Health Reform but more about galvanizing ideas for reforming the spiritual mental, physical and emotional health of our Wards 7 and 8.
