Demonstrators push Cook County, IL, to boost funding for healthcare

Chicago Tribune, February 20, 2008
About 350 doctors, patients and healthcare workers rallied in Chicago to press for increased funding for the Cook County (IL)Bureau of Health Services. Physicians told rallygoers that patients face increasingly long waits for appointments and that working conditions for health professionals have worsened. The rallygoers urged county commissioners to restore funding from cuts imposed during the 2007 budget crunch.
