Antes del año pasado, la inseguridad alimentaria afectó a aproximadamente el 10,5% de los residentes de EE. UU. Una vez que la pandemia cerró en gran medida la economía, los expertos estiman que el porcentaje de personas que sufren de inseguridad alimentaria al menos se duplicó.
Across the nation, nearly 800,000 people suffer strokes each year. When someone has a stroke, minutes matter, but hospital closures and other access issues mean millions of people find it difficult to get specialty stroke care quickly.
"We really want to take care of these folks and we have a big burden on us but at the same time its quite rewarding to do what we do because we know so many people, friends and family members that we've helped to get the care that they need and sometimes that does mean we have to get them out of the parish but we can certainly save lives if given the opportunity," said Dr. Eric Dupree.
