Campbell stresses need to address insurance gap
Tennessee needs to expand its Medicaid coverage to reach more people, according to Rev. Bill Campbell, who addressed The Rotary Club of McMinnville on Thursday.
Laura buried her head in a blood-soaked towel as she ran from her home near Rev. Bill Campbell’s church. When he tried to offer aid to the stricken women, he found himself in her home confronting her husband in one of his drunken rages.Fortunately, the churchman recalled, the husband, screaming abuse and curses, lost his balance, toppled down the stairs and was unable to get up. Campbell hustled Laura and her terrified son, age 5, out of their den of torment and into a domestic abuse shelter.While Laura and her son were rescued from immediate danger, she was trapped between impossible choices.
