The Compassionate Care Network (CCN) supported the residents of Libertyville IL to receive additional information and assistance on health coverage through the â€œGet Covered Americaâ€ program throughout Ramadan.
The CCN Program was based on a â€œ30 mosques in 30 daysâ€ approach, which is reported to have reached over 10,000 residents in the Chicago area.
According to Dr. Azher Quader, Executive Director of CCN, â€œLibertyville residents shouldnâ€™t feel the need to risk their health and financial security becasue of their lack of insurance coverage; not when there is a great alternative available.â€
â€œOrganizations like CCN that have strong grassroots ties to the Libertyville community are extremely valuable partners,â€ commented Punya Krishnappa, Illinois Organizing Director of Get Covered America.
CCN consists off over 200 health professionals who volunteer to serve people who have difficulty obtaining care.
