MIAMI (March 27, 2012) – Law students from FIU’s Health Ethics Law and Policy (HELP) Clinic are helping low-income community members access vital healthcare services through community-based education. Three students – Ilana Bonan, Christopher Bryant and Justin Budwick – created a presentation explaining eligibility requirements and program benefits for Medicaid, Medicare, and Jackson Care Card programs. On March 22, they delivered the presentation to roughly 80 low-income residents of Little Haiti, Liberty City, and North Miami. “This information is incredibly important,” said organizer Christella Dorval. “Many people do not know how to apply, and they often are scared to ask for help. The fact that these students are willing to come out to the community to share information is really wonderful.”
