Seems like education is always at the front of many concerns. Why do we continue to put up with so many failing public school systems?

I have studied these very recent outcomes in relationship to the the bias that our healthcare system seems to play in society where some people have resources and others do not and we tend to think that everyone should fit into the ideal healthcare situation which is not the case.

Social determinants can vastly affects or shape one's health and affect wide range of medical risk and outcomes. Such include the likes of socio-economic condition, location, and access to wide variety of services.

Sadly our healthcare system prevents the vast majority of Americans to go for checkups and follow through on care due to costs. When kidney failure hits, and it does, I have heard many times that " I just couldn't afford to get my medication or go to the Dr.."
