This Year’s Gala theme , “Healthcare is a Human Right,” was selected at a time in our nation when healthcare costs are skyrocketing and major changes to the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and Universal Medicare are being considered .
These Changes can have a tremendous adverse impact on our communities, particularly the undocumented families with whom we work –who already have very limited access to health services.
The high- quality medical care is a basic human right that should be available to all has been a theme of the Dominican Women’s Development Center from the beginning .It is a theme that is more urgent now than ever.
