    Expanding Access to Quality Health Care
    Although Lake County, Illinois, is one of America’s wealthiest, more than 30 percent of its population – some 249,879 people – are underinsured or have no health insurance. Fortunately, they can depend on HealthReach, a not-for-profit organization that operates the county’s only free health clinics.
