AbstractThis is a detailed case study about a young student suffering from a chronic health condition, Crohn's disease, which requires a low-stress lifestyle and regular medical treatment to keep it from flaring up. When financial pressure and lack of insurance keeps the student from being able to seek out appropriate medical treatment, what are her doctor's, her friends and family, and society's responsibility to assist her? Includes expert commentary.
