AFC’s Healthcare Hero-in-Chief, Melanie Paul

On August 4th, AFC’s very own Supportive Housing Program Coordinator Melanie Paul shared the podium with Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias, U.S. Reps. Jan Schakowsky and Danny Davis (D-Chicago), and others to demand real health care reform at a major Chicago rally. Melanie told her story to let Congress know that yes, it can be nearly impossible to stay healthy when you have a medical history, even if you are employed and insured. She is just one of millions of Americans whose very wellbeing is put at risk because of our broken health insurance system.
