Inspiring…especially on the media’s swine flu day

This is an interesting and short story about a local doctor who’s set up a non-profit for treating the city’s restaurant workers.  He collects a dollar from each restaurant for each month for each seat they have.  In turn, their employees can come in for health care whenever and for whatever.  According to the article, the percentage of restaurant workers sans health insurance maybe as high as 75%.  It’s an inspiring story and Dr. Ores maybe expanding to a neighborhood near you.  He’s looking to branch out into Williamsburg and continues to reach out to more restaurants in the Lower East Side.
