Cameron in Ft. Wayne, Indiana

Cameron in Ft. Wayne, Indiana
Originally uploaded by walk4healthcare

Cameron’s a 4th year medical student but on a leave of absence to pursue a law degree. He’s planning for a career in health advocacy—at the intersection of health and law. As a student, however, he cannot afford, at $220/month, the health insurance offered to him. But he’s lucky because he gets coverage through his wife who’s a resident.

In his medical school experiences, he’s come across many patients who have foregone medical care because of a lack of health insurance and this has inspired him to help to solve this problem.
