As a son of a physician who spent his career serving primarily disadvantaged patients, and promoting health care as a human right, Senator Raoul has vowed to continue his father's legacy to create better access to quality health care for all. Consequently, he has vigorously supported the new All Kids program, which will make Illinois the first state in the nation to provide affordable, comprehensive health insurance for every child.
He has also successfully sponsored several important bills that promote women's health, including a bill that would mandate insurance coverage of mammograms for women under 40 with a family history of breast cancer. Additionally, he has successfully sponsored legislation to improve the health outcomes of racial and ethnic populations through a program of grants that will stimulate the development of community-based and neighborhood-based projects.
