We see a young girl looking out a window, staring at a hospital, wishing she could afford it. Some aren’t able to afford hospital bills because they might not get paid enough or the hospital doesn’t accept their insurance. Because of these struggles, hospitals should lower their costs and accept more insurances.
Many people in the community are living in the middle class or the lower class. Good and efficient medical health care isn’t provided nearby and many can not afford the transportation. Even though health care is important it is not provided for the lower class people in ways such as not affordable and no transportation
Here in this photo I see an abandoned house.This symbolizes the things we tried to persevere but didn’t and the struggles our community is going through.There’s so much things that we go through that reflex on us as individuals. Not being able to pay your rent is an reason why houses end up abandoned. We need make programs that help people financially but only if their willing to help themselves.
This picture encompasses one community that is divided in equity. In one portion there are run down houses and liquor stores on every corner, which could be seen as a business tactic. The healthier, more beneficial food stores are posted in the wealthier part of the community. This creates a barrier between parts of the community in terms of health equity.
You see a vast area of land that could be used for something else. For example, a garden for fresh produce. This concern exists because a lot of communities don’t have the access to fresh foods to feed themselves and their families. We can ask for city permission and do the garden ourselves or ask the community if they would like to do something else.
This picture shows an outdoor area that is developing into a garden with Cass Tech in the background.People have chosen to work together to repurpose rundown areas in order to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to inner city kids. This can help bring better food to families in need. This situation of not having access to healthy foods exist because of health inequity. Together we can support local gardens and help provide more access to fresh produce to people in need.
