- Series Description
The mission of THE HEALTH QUARTERLY is to examine the social, political and personal impact of the changes in America's health care system, and to provide a forum for debates and exploration those health care issues. In the first program, the alarming crisis of the uninsured is faced, spotlighting 3 companies and 3 families from opposite ends of the spectrum - the problems, the failed solutions, and prospects for the future. The program concludes with an update on what is still the major health crisis facing the world today, AIDS, and discrimination against AIDS patients. Hosted by Peter Jennings. Series release date: 1991
- Program Description
This program investigates "the most lobbied bill in history," which is President Bill Clinton's proposed Health Care Reform Bill. Since his main aim is to cut costs, some sectors of the vast health care industry will make less money. The program, hosted by Roger Mudd, investigates the enormous and diverse health care lobby, and the time, energy and money being spent by lobbyists for consumer, insurers, pharmaceutical companies and physicians to advance their interests. Later in the program, profiles of two primary care physicians - Dr. David Abbey and Dr. Lorraine Wood - provide a springboard for an examination of the importance the family doctor of old might play in the new reformed system.
