How Health Policy Affects People's Lives: Dr Patricia Salber Interviews Sarah Varney
As the senior national correspondent at Kaiser Health News, Sarah Varney covers health policy, specifically looking at federal law and how it rolls out in states and local jurisdictions. During her conversation with Patricia Salber, MD, MBA, of The Doctor Weighs In, she explained how her articles are shaped by the time she spends in the field talking to people affected by the policy decisions made in Washington, DC, or state capitals.
Recently, she spent time in Houston, Texas, to talk to people recovering from Hurricane Harvey about the challenges they faced in getting treatment after the storm. They also discussed getting a better perspective of people’s lives and how health policy will impact them.
