Healthcare Politics with Steve Larchuk is an hour-long weekly radio program and podcast hosted by an experienced health law lawyer, longtime health reform advocate, speaker, and drafter of health care reform legislation.
The pending repeal of “ObamaCare” will profoundly affect every citizen, every health care provider, and every business large and small. 74% of eligible American voters said that healthcare was “very important” to their vote in 2016. Healthcare Politics could not come at a more critical moment: a robust and spirited discussion is essential.
Professionally produced and promoted, Healthcare Politics is consistent in quality and delivery. Guests are experts in their respective fields from around the country and are provided the luxury of time to advance the discussion. This is all substance – not a string of sound bites.
Steve Larchuk is candid about his belief that a national single payer approach is best, but opposing points of view are welcome and encouraged. Recent guests include Dr. Tsou, past president of the American Public Health Association, rising Democratic star Jason Kander of Missouri, Director Kay Tillow of Unions for Single Payer, and Dr. Bruce Trigg, a nationally recognized authority on the opioid epidemic.
Healthcare Politics is broadcast out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, every Monday from 3-4 pm ET and is available for national syndication.
