David Walter Banks recently spent some time photographing Roberta Antonio for the Wall Street Journal.  As the economy has declined, employers have cut benefits, staff, shared health costs, and retirement contribument at alarming rates.  Some people, like Antonio, have been able to hang on to lost jobs by coming back in a contract capacity.  Antonio has even found that she likes working from home as an added benefit.

20090922_Dialysis_Dyp

After a battle in court last Friday an Atlanta judge ruled that Grady Memorial Hospital could close it’s free dialysis clinic for uninsured individuals.  After the ruling the hospital offered to assist in payment for dialysis elsewhere for a period of three months.  Grady also offered to financially assist patients in moving to other states where they may be covered by Medicaid or returning to their home country.  I spent some time with a few of the patients at a meeting with their lawyer before the ruling last Wednesday and was moved by their stories.  I hope and wish the best for them, but for many the end of that three months will be a sentence to death.  My prayers are with them.  To read the stories click here or here.
