All eyes have been on Vermont when it became the first state to commit to adopting a single payer approach to health care. But the re-elected Vermont governor recently announced that he was backing out of the plan to do so.
Betty Rambur, PhD, RN, Professor of Nursing and Health Policy at the University of Vermont and one of five members of Vermont’s Green Mountain Care Board, talks with Healthstyles producer and moderator Diana Mason, PhD, RN, on Thursday, January 15, 2015, about how the state is responding to the governor’s decision.
Healthstyles Producer Kenya Beard, EdD, ANP, GNP, joins Diana Mason for the second part of Healthstyles to talk with Willie Tolliver, PhD, MSW, professor of social work at Hunter College, about the connection between discrimination and stress as an important factor in health disparities. The discussion includes responses to the recent events surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and other African Americans, and the implications for health disparities among African Americans.
