Path Toward Healing: Building equity in Charlotte’s health care community
Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021
In WFAE's series The Price We Pay, we examined the reasons Americans pay so much more for care and drugs than the rest of the world while our outcomes are worse.
We discovered great disparities in access to care and the ability to pay for treatment and pharmaceuticals. Where money and access are an issue, life expectancy is impacted. Housing stability, education and other factors also contribute to health outcomes.
In this episode of Charlotte Talks, in partnership with Northeastern University, we take a closer look at what health equity truly means and hear from leaders about possible solutions.
This show was part of a live event. Details.
