Miguel and Sonia
Like Miguel and Sonia, we all need dental care.
It is well established that poor oral health is linked to diabetes, heart diseases and other worsened health outcomes, particularly for the elderly who are at increased risk for these serious health conditions.
Their urgent need for dental care has meant that they have had to travel to Sonia’s native country of the Dominican Republic in order to receive the care they required. This has consumed a huge portion of their limited income, but they see no other option. Sonia, 73, fears that soon she will be unable to continue traveling to receive these services that are critical to their health.
The Florida Health Justice Project, a nonprofit organization, recognizes that access to quality and affordable health care is a human right and engages in comprehensive advocacy to expand health care access and promote health equity for vulnerable Floridians.
