My family, my faith, my decision
I remember when I landed my first job that offered health insurance. I was thrilled about the job – and that I would finally have access to more affordable birth control.

A brighter future, through the fog of depression
Not long after I entered middle school, I started struggling with depression, although it would be five years before I was taught the vocabulary to describe what I was feeling.

Keeping our commitment to seniors on Medicare
The Republican plan ends traditional Medicare’s guarantee of a specific set of health benefits available to all seniors. For the fourth straight year, the Republican budget includes a plan that would shift health care costs onto seniors. And I can tell you what that means. It means that out-of....

My employer shamed me for using birth control Anonymous
On March 25, the Supreme Court will hear arguments from companies that want to violate this law. Here is a story from one of the many women whose boss has tried to deny her birth control. For fear of losing her job, she requested to remain anonymous. For the past three years, I have worked at ....

Obama: Why it is important to get covered
We never know what curveballs life is going to throw at us. But we do know that those curveballs come. That’s why it’s so important that we all sign up for health insurance and get our friends and family to sign up too. As part of our ongoing efforts to educate Latinos about the benefits and prot....

It’s about women’s health and rights
Court cases related to a provision in the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, to provide preventive health services generated a great deal of media coverage over the past couple weeks—much of it misleading. Newspaper headlines and television pundits around the country may have inadvertently led many Amer....

The country’s nutritional health remains a top priority for the Obama Administration. What and how we eat affects our ability to succeed, our hopes and dreams, the economy, the environment, and most of all, our children.

Forget the GOP’s sabotage, get covered
As a mother, there is almost nothing more important for the security of my family than good, reliable health coverage.
