Dr. David Satcher Applauds High Court's Healthcare Decision
The affordable healthcare act ruling by the United States Supreme Court gives momentum in the effort to eliminate health disparities. Satcher has long been a proponent of equal access to healthcare. He calls the high court’s decision a step in the right direction on a troubled healthcare path.
“We’ve been increasing the number of the uninsured. 13-million more people are uninsured than when I left office so this reverses that,” says Satcher.
What is of great importance to Dr. Satcher he says is the focus on primary care and prevention. That’s especially critical to those living with chronic illnesses.
