By: Tatum Sommer
40 percent of america could not pay their medical bills, causing doctors and nurses incomes to be split in half. Sadly many people could not afford to be hospitalized when they were sick or wounded.
Scientist made a vaccine for deadly diseases including poliomyelitis known as polio.
In 1938 the National foundation was created to make a vaccine for polio, this foundation was created by the NFIP!
In the 1930s many large public areas were closed for example school, swimming pools, movie theaters,and sport areas! These were closed because doctors and parents did not want to give their kid or themselves polio.
