Healthy Kids

October 18th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

As the Congress considers what to do about the Presidents veto, a widely respected Florida pediatrician says getting more money for children’s health care is imperative. Dr. Louis Saint Petery says not providing care creates cyclical problems that send children into a downward spiral that can continue into adulthood.

“You’re going to have a lot of families whose income is such that they cannot afford health insurance,” St. Petery said. “And if they’re going to be able to buy health insurance, then they’re going to forgo certain things in their lives which may relate to nutrition and what have you.”

As many as 400 thousand Florida Children could be eligible for reduced health care if Florida matched federal dollars.
