Summary

The storefront Mom and Tots Neighborhood Center - a remarkable experiment in community health care - was founded by a diminutive registered nurse named Nancy Milio. It was run by and for the people of inner-city Detroit. During the riots of the late 1960s, buildings on both sides of it were fired and gutted. The Center was untouched. Why it was untouched is one of the implicit themes of 9226 Kercheval, as is the theme of the struggle - struggle in the birth and development of a truly relevant health care center, and struggle to define "health" in its broadest possible terms.
