"Last year an individual could expect to pay $4,824 for health insurance; a family of four could expect to pay $13,375. These rates have led to more than 46 million Americans going without coverage. This is why community-led wellness efforts are so important."

"That's where New York City's radical community-based health care exchange, the Rock Dove Collective, comes in. General physical and mental wellness with a progressive community component is what this group is all about. With specialists focused on physical, mental, sexual, emotional, social and spiritual health, the group is able to provide a well-rounded assortment of services to the general public through the exchange of mutual aid."
