Another thing that could be done is to set up low cost clinics that specifically cater to poverty level families. These clinics could extend medical services that are not sub-par and still see enough patients for a low fee to generate a sufficient income.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
