The project gives opportunities to “active eco-women” to show and disseminate their experience through seminaries, portraits and video films that they produce themselves.

Surgical procedure have a high asking price. A good basic office visit is costly for those who have a small income. Should you be paying in cash as you don't have medical insurance, ask the billing department should they will lower the price. Negotiating on the healthcare costs could help you save lots of money on the total. Federally-funded health clinics present an alternative for all those not insured who can't afford to fund treatments. The clinics are offered across the nation, supplying you with use of medical care. You spend a fee according to your earnings to have an affordable medical care option. The clinics provide preventative care, maternity care, immunizations and treatment for illnesses.
