Pittsburgh's 'Take a Professional to the People Day' is one of several local programs intended to improve health
care access in low-income and minority neighborhoods, where many
residents don’t see a doctor often. The lack of routine visits can
increase their risk of medical catastrophes like heart attacks and
strokes, and puts a strain on the health care system, doctors say.
This month at The Lighthouse in Chelsea Piers, The Romare Bearden Foundation held its annual fundraiser for
the ongoing support of its arts programs in schools and throughout the
city, one of which is an educational fund for art teachers to teach in
New York City schools.
