The Health & Justice Project is a series of interviews about health care inequities in the United States. We talked with volunteers, medical professionals and, most importantly, the patients and asked them to share their personal stories and views on the state of health care. The first, ten-part series was recorded in 2011 at Jericho Road Family Practice in Buffalo, New York. You can listen to the entire series of interviews together or as individual episodes.
The second, four-part series was recorded at the the 2012 Christian Community Health Fellowship conference in Nashville, TN.
