Faith healer: the story of Aida Giachello
Latino Leaders: The National Magazine of the Successful American Latino, Oct-Nov, 2005 by Kerri Allen
Aida Giachello is not OK with it. In fact, you could say that the inequity in the U.S. health care system makes her sick. Latinos are the largest ethnic group in America without health insurance. They are twice as likely as their non-Latino counterparts to have diabetes. Puerto Ricans suffer disproportionately from the general population from asthma and infant mortality. Many Latino families suffer from living in neighborhoods near toxic waste or with polluted air, and subsequently have lower life expectancies.
