Senior Fellow Carole R. Myers PhD brings her health policy expertise to the airwaves twice a month to NPR’s Morning News on 91.9 FM WUOT in Knoxville, TN. Here’s the program write up from WUOT’s website where you can listen to her the segment:

 

 

This week marks the launch of a new series, HealthConnections. The brainchild of University of Tennessee associate professor Dr. Carole Myers, HealthConnections will bring the often-abstract world of health care, coverage and policy to a human level. What is access? How do marketplaces work? What’s the future of health insurance?

Dr. Myers and WUOT’s Brandon Hollingsworth will sort through these issues and more, all to give you a toolbox for understanding what you hear on the news, or to separate fact from fiction in the health care debate.

In the premiere episode, Dr. Myers and Hollingsworth introduce the series and get up to speed on the American Health Care Act, the GOP’s possible replacement for the Affordable Care Act.

What’s on your mind? On Twitter, send your questions to @wuotfm, or send an email to newsroom [at] wuot.org and use “HealthConnections” as your subject line.

Congratulations Carole! The entire team at the Center applaud you on this new platform where you will report on health policy.
