Why this topic?

A lifetime of appropriate clinical care that includes screenings for common, potential health problems will greatly improve the quality of a person’s entire life span, and reduce dependence on social support mechanisms in later years.

However, when money is tight, appropriate care, screenings, and control of chronic health conditions often takes a back seat to rent, groceries and other basic needs. Those living in poverty are often the most at risk for chronic diseases, and the least able to manage them in a healthy way.
