Buffalo Niagara suffers from serious health problems closely linked to poverty, environmental problems, and systemic inequality. Problems like lead poisoning and asthma, for example, disproportionately affect people of color and people with low incomes. Like other regions, Buffalo Niagara also suffers from our broken health insurance system, which excludes many working people from coverage and imposes unnecessary costs on employers.
