Minority communities and health care reform

The World

Although the campaign for health care reform may be in its final stretch, even reform supporters are having to plan very carefully for how we would pay for the changes, should they happen.

We’re joined by two experts in Massachusetts community health care who have worked in that particularly forward-looking system; they discuss how their programs could serve as either model or a warning to the Democrat’s reform agenda. Ann Eldridge Malone is a registered nurse in Boston as well as the executive director of The Alliance to Defend Health Care. She says that, good intentions aside, the money isn’t there to pay for all this care.

We’re also joined by Robert Pomales, executive director for the Latin American Health Institute who argues that we need to keep working toward health care coverage for everyone.
