Barbara Glickstein hosts this week’s Healthstyles on WBAI Pacifica Radion 99.5 FM streamed at http://www.wbai.org
at 1PM to 2PM.
She opens with HealthCetera:
“Collapsing pharmaceutical investment in a disease of global concern such as TB is alarming,” said Colleen Daniels, TAG’s TB/HIV project director. “Public and charitable institutions have matched and exceeded investments made by pharmaceutical companies in their own products, but it hasn’t been enough to keep industry involved. The current R&D model is broken and is failing TB patients, who have had to wait decades for better diagnostics, drugs, and vaccines to fight TB.”
In the second part of the hour she celebrates the first anniversary of FireceforBlackWomen.com
‘s with co-founders Yanick Rice Lamb and Sheree Crute.

We are excited to tell you about a special program we’ve put together for Healthstyles tomorrow, Thursday, October 9th, from 1:00 to 3:00 on WBAI, 99.5 FM in NYC (wbai.org). It’s part of the station’s fundraising marathon, and we hope you’ll tune in and make a donation during our time slot by calling 212-209-2950.
We lead off with a discussion about the Affordable Care Act–what’s working, what’s not, and what can help to improve health care in the state and nation. NY State Assemblyman and Chair of the Assembly Health Committee, Richard Gottfried, joins us for that discussion and talks about a bill he has sponsored to adopt a single-payer approach in the state.
Barbara then interviews political cartoonist Jen Sorensen about health care reform. She talks about a cartoon about health care reform that we’ll be offering as a premium to listeners who make a qualifying donation to WBAI during the program.
