Amid healthcare reform, free clinics see no end to need

Wisconsin State Journal, September 30, 2013

On a recent morning at Our Lady of Hope Clinic in Madison, the small waiting room filled quickly with the uninsured. There was Donna Dalrymple, 48, a newly unemployed mental health aide. There was Niabi Schmaltz, 21, just graduated from Northwestern University but working a restaurant job and not yet able to afford her employer's insurance. There was Kathleen McCain, 44, recently hired as a job coach for a nonprofit organization but still on probation and ineligible for benefits.
