No health insurance for 60% of Hispanics

"More than a quarter of the Tennessee population under the age of 65 - about 1.4 million people - were without health insurance for at least part 2002 and 2003, according to a new study."

"Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA, the national health-care advocacy group that released a study on uninsured Americans this week, will speak about the issue at 7 p.m. today at the Main Library, 615 Church Street."

"The report also found great disparities among races, with about 23.5 percent of non-Hispanic whites, 42.9 percent of non-Hispanic blacks and 59.5 percent of Hispanics without health coverage."
