Diabetes By The Numbers: March for Health (part 2)

How do you do two interviews on the same subject on different days within the same week? It helps if something big happens on one of the days in between interviews.

“Everything in my life, every decision I’ve made throughout my life, has always been framed around, ‘Will I be able to get health insurance?’.”

In part two of my discussions with leaders of the March for Health, the wonderful organizer of the Nashville march, Cara Richardson explains perfectly why, even though the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives pulled his “repeal and replace” healthcare legislation from consideration last Friday, there is still a need for a March. She explains exactly why access to care and spreading knowledge of patient’s rights are such an important part of her life.

Trust me… this will be well worth your time.
