Health Inequality, Pt1

In this documentary, we ask why it is that the wealthiest Americans live as many as fifteen years longer than the poorest. It’s a troubling question at a time when income inequality has reached levels not seen since the run up to the Great Depression. Nationwide – even with more people covered through the Affordable Care Act – nearly 30 million Americans remain without health insurance. And medical problems that go undiagnosed and untreated often get worse.
