Doctors slow to volunteer for MilwaukeeCares

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, February 25, 2008
MilwaukeeCares, an initiative announced nearly three years ago to recruit volunteer doctors to treat uninsured patients in Milwaukee County, has drawn far fewer doctors than hoped. The Medical Society of Milwaukee County had hoped to persuade 80 percent to 90 percent of the estimated 4,000 physicians in the county to accept a few uninsured patients each month or even each year. Currently, less than 3 percent have volunteered.
