Diabetes By The Numbers: March for Health (part 1)

Wow. What a turn of events. Last Thursday, when Leyla Mansour-Cole and I recorded this interview, we were less than 24 hours away from the unexpected move of the Speaker of the House of Representatives pulling the Republican’s “repeal and replace” health care legislation from consideration.

Still, there is a lot left to debate when it comes to health care in America. And that’s why people all over the country will be participating in the March for Health Saturday, April 1. So many of us are affected by the way care, drugs, and medical technology are delivered in this country. That’s a lot of what we’ll be talking about in this episode.

And don’t forget to listen to Wednesday’s companion interview on March for Health with Cara Richardson. Together, these two are the model of what happens when you see an important issue and throw yourself head first into the discussion, making a huge, positive impact.
