Clinton says his foundation to tackle health gaps
The Clinton Health Matters Initiative will try to close the gaps in health based on income, race and education, and also take aim at preventable disease. Clinton has enlisted Verizon, General Electric Co. and Tenet Healthcare Corp. as corporate partners. Tenet will, among other efforts, work through the Center for the Urban Child at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia "to address the nutritional needs and other challenges facing urban families." The effort to reduce health disparities will start in California's Coachella Valley— where health disparities between wealthy communities like Palm Springs and neighboring rural towns are among the highest in the country—and Little Rock, Arkansas, in Clinton's home state.
