Outrage. That’s what the stories in the book Denied: The Crisis of America’s Uninsured should inspire. Outrage at a system that doles out care based on the ability to pay rather than legitimate need. Outrage for the people who suffer in silence when a remedy is out of reach. Outrage at a society that allows people to die because they can’t afford healthcare.
The individual stories that appear in this book, one for every million uninsured people, are stark testimony of a dysfunctional healthcare delivery system. They reveal the harrowing reality faced by people every day when access is denied and the disparity in healthcare rules their lives.
