Health Disparities : Weaving A New Understanding Through Case Narratives
Milagros is a 50-year-old Puerto Rican woman whose family I met while over the course of 3 months volunteering at a family medicine clinic in South Bronx. She was accompanied by her two teenage daughters, Amparo, 18, and Beatriz, 13, and her grandson Alberto. She had been widowed 8 years ago and had only got insurance because of Medicaid expansion. She suffered from uncontrolled diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and HIV.
