Health Reform

By: Heather Reilly

Causes:

  • Many people get sick a lot of the time from unsanitary living conditions.
  • This is something that could easily be prevented and could save many people's lives with just a few investments to keep everything sanitary.

Objectives:

  • It is important for everyone to live a happy and healthy life.
  • It's important to have sanitary living conditions.
  • If everyone does all they can to keep everything sanitary than not as many people will die from getting sick.
  • Most of these sicknesses can be prevented with a few steps.

  • Many new developments and scientific studies will make a large impact.

How we achieved these goals:

  • Safe bridges
  • Public transportation
  • Sewers
  • Hospitals
  • Health care
  • All of these were investments Theodore Roosevelt suggested.

Successes and Failures:

  • FDR gives the right for everyone to have good medical care and the opportunity to live a healthy life.
  • Theodore Roosevelt passed a law to make these ideas come into action and for everyone to get the medical care they need.
  • Not everyone will like these ideas, but they're really just to help people.
  • Even if people protest about this, it doesn't really matter because Roosevelt made the decision to pass the law.
