A 24-year-old Cincinnati father died from a tooth infection this week because he couldn’t afford his medication.

“He might as well have been living in 1927. All of the advances we’ve made in medicine today and are proud of – for people who don’t have coverage, you might as well never have developed those.” – Dr. Jim Jirjis, director of general internal medicine at Vanderbilt University
