NAACP-SA HISTORY: Activists Pushed for a Publicly Funded University Health System


Activists with the NAACP pushed for a publicly funded University Health System to address the lack of hospitals and full-service clinics in eastern Bexar County in 2013.

“The whole county is paying taxes, including the east, said activist Lou Miller, who’s leading the effort. But we don’t see the services. We don’t see the hospitals, We don’t see any significant clinics…” “All too often, people in certain socioeconomic statuses always have to drive to receive services,” said Miller, who chairs the disparity subcommittee for the NAACP’s San Antonio branch. “I think that’s totally unfair, and I think it’s time that it be addressed.”
