We are excited to tell you about a special program we’ve put together for Healthstyles tomorrow, Thursday, October 9th, from 1:00 to 3:00 on WBAI, 99.5 FM in NYC (wbai.org). It’s part of the station’s fundraising marathon, and we hope you’ll tune in and make a donation during our time slot by calling 212-209-2950.
We lead off with a discussion about the Affordable Care Act–what’s working, what’s not, and what can help to improve health care in the state and nation. NY State Assemblyman and Chair of the Assembly Health Committee, Richard Gottfried, joins us for that discussion and talks about a bill he has sponsored to adopt a single-payer approach in the state.
Barbara then interviews political cartoonist Jen Sorensen about health care reform. She talks about a cartoon about health care reform that we’ll be offering as a premium to listeners who make a qualifying donation to WBAI during the program.
You can listen to the interview:
**Finally, we’ll end with Barbara’s interview with founder and CEO of Hip Hop Saves Lives, Chad Harper, about his advocacy, education and work with youth to promote an understanding of and activism around some of the important health and social issue of our day.
