From the Paper:

"Another atrocity at the hands at the government is that they plan to cut the Healthy Start program, which assists high-risk communities and helps to prevent infant mortality (Pelosi, 2005, p.4). If this was to occur in a few years or less the incidence of kidney failure in African Americans could dramatically increase. Without the proper teaching from healthcare providers, the high-risk communities will develop a massive distrust of the hospital system in place. The president also plans to make a 6% cut in the Office of Minority Health, which supports disease prevention, education on high-risk behavior, and health promotion (Pelosi, 2005, p.4). This will be another factor in the death from diabetes, end stage renal disease (ESRD), and ultimately kidney failure. The statistical trend could be prevented with a voice speaking out for those who cannot speak for themselves."
