GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER IS SIGNING A NEW LAW DESIGNED TO BRING MORE EQUITY TO HEALTHCARE IN ILLINOIS. 

 

THE REFORM BILL MAKES SEVERAL CHANGES TO TACKLE THE PROBLEM OF DISCRIMINATION AND RACISM WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING MEDICAL TREATMENT. THEY INCLUDE:

 

 

BILL SPONSOR, REPRESENTATIVE CAMILLE LILLY OF CHICAGO SAYS MINORITIES ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED WHEN IT COMES TO CERTAIN DISEASES AND MORTALITY RATES, AND FACE MORE BARRIERS TO GOOD MEDICAL CARE. THIS NEW LAW AIMS TO CHANGE THAT.

 

 

THE NEW LAW ALSO REQUIRES DAY CARE PROVIDERS TO BE TRAINED IN CHILDHOOD EMOTIONAL LEARNING AND TRAUMA, PREVENTS SOMEONE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR A DRUG OVERDOSE FROM BEING ARRESTED AND ENSURES HOSPITALS PROVIDE N-95 MASKS TO ALL DOCTORS AND NURSES FREE OF CHARGE.
