Resolving Socioeconomic Stressors for Stronger, Healthier Women

  • Resolving Socioeconomic Stressors: When providers recommend healthcare practices like exercise and safe behaviors, they make assumptions that their patients live in safe neighborhoods, are not in abusive relationships, have stable employment and can read the instructions on their medications. This card provides resources for a wide range of socioeconomic assistance available in RI.
  • Affordable Care Act: Patient opportunities, including specific benefits for women that lower costs, improves care, improves access and helps families afford good insurance.
