Tar Heel of the Week: Elaine Brown advocates health care for all

Elaine Peebles Brown  

July 12, 2014

- Elaine Brown was having lunch at Chick-fil-A recently when a homeless man with open sores on his arms caught her eye.


She got him talking, and soon she pulled a bright yellow card from her back pocket, alerting him to Wake Health Services, a 42-year-old nonprofit organization that offers medical care to all comers, regardless of whether they can pay or have insurance.


Brown leads the volunteer board at Wake Health, which serves 25,000 people in Wake and Franklin counties. About a third of them are uninsured, many are enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid, and some are part of the program's homeless outreach.


But others, such as Brown, come to the organization's six clinics with private insurance, lured by the convenience and comprehensive approach to care, with many services, such as dental care for children and diabetes care, all under one roof. Click here to read the full article.
