Bronx Health REACH on BronxTalk!

BronxTalk, a call-in talk show focused on issues affecting Bronx residents, featured Bronx Health REACH and New York Lawyers for the Public Interest on its program on Monday, March 26th at 9 pm. The 30 minute program featured Charmaine Ruddock, Bronx Health REACH Project Director, and Shena Elrington, Director, Health Justice Program at New York Lawyers for the Public Interest. The weekly show, hosted by Gary Axelbank, airs live on Monday nights and invites guests to speak about a variety of issues, including health care, education, crime, and housing.

This week’s episode focused primarily on access to specialty care, especially concerning discriminatory treatment due to a patient’s health insurance status. This issue, which Bronx Health REACH calls segregated care, has been at the forefront of the coalition’s advocacy efforts for over a decade. To read more about segregated care and how this discriminatory practice affects the health of residents in the Bronx and throughout New York City, click here.
