Free health care can’t make up for a low income when it comes to living healthy: study
Southern California Public Radio

There may be no substitute for a healthy income when it comes to managing chronic health conditions in children, says a new study – even when they have access to free health care. That’s according to research appearing in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, which looked at Canadian children with type 1 diabetes. Canada has a system of free universal access to health care, meaning the cost of care wasn’t a barrier for these children.
