Dr. David Ansel is a local physician who has worked at Rush, Cook County and Mt. Sinai hospitals – all located on the west side of Chicago. In 2017 he wrote the book “The Death Gap”. He states “tens of thousands of Americans die too early. These early deaths are not random events. These deaths strike particular individuals who live in particular American neighborhoods. While we know that people die of cancer, heart disease and so on, this killer is one that we cannot treat with drugs, therapy, or surgery. This killer is inequality”.
