 Among the dead was a so-called Dreamer, a migrant brought to the United States as a young child. Another 30 undocumented immigrants packed in the trailer were still alive but gasping from the lack of oxygen and the sweltering heat. They were taken to nearby hospitals where 17 are in critical condition.

[OP-ED]: La asombrosa mala calidad del sistema de atención odontológica en Estados Unidos

Reviví en detalles viscerales y morbosos mis recuerdos dolorosos de abscesos, tratamientos de conducto, extracciones de premolares y otras cosas más al leer el libro triste y horrible de Mary Otto: “Teeth: The Story of Beauty, Inequality and the Struggle for Oral Health in America” (Dientes: una historia de belleza, inequidad y dificultades para la salud oral en Estados Unidos). 

Di a luz a tres bebés, me quebré la muñeca, me fracturé el coxis dos veces, incluso me hice tatuajes y, una vez, cuando sospechaban que había contraído el virus del Nilo, me hicieron dos punciones lumbares (una falló) para potenciar el conocimientos de los estudiantes de medicina a la vez que se aseguraban del diagnóstico.
