Mom Pushes for Care (re: Medicaid issues)
Shelea Mayo, 16, was embarrassed when her mother sat Shelea and her then boyfriend down one afternoon and gave them "the talk" about relationships and responsibility.

Beverly Mayo admits her children sometimes try to cut her off, interjecting with "TMI," for too much information, when the conversation is getting too personal for them.

Mayo was looking out for her daughter in that same way a few weeks ago when she tried to get Shelea an appointment with a gynecologist.

Mayo said she was surprised when obstetrics-gynecology offices she called would take Shelea as a new patient if she were pregnant but would not accept her just for basic gynecological care.

2. Were the wheels ever there?
Healthcare disparities are not a new issue. There's a long tradition of some physicians turning away the poor, or the pigmentally challenged, from their doors.
