"Karina Brown’s mother died of an acute stroke in 2013 — uninsured and just a few months short of qualifying for health benefits under Medicare.

A single mother with seven kids, she went without regular medical screenings and checkups for most of her life, Brown said Monday. She would talk with friends and family in the medical field when she needed it, but her mother feared that seeing a doctor would be too expensive.

Brown joined a handful of health care advocates on Monday as they submitted a proposed ballot initiative to fully expand Medicaid in Utah to the lieutenant governor’s office – a measure Brown believes could help others experiencing similar circumstances to her family."
