Calls Grow for Medicare for All; Uninsured & Communities of Color Hurt Most by COVID-19 Funds

With COVID-19 coverage ending for the uninsured, we look at how uninsured people and communities of color will bear the impact of the end of free COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccines. The pandemic has led to a renewed push for Medicare for All. We are joined by Dr. Oni Blackstock, primary care and HIV physician and founder and executive director of Health Justice, Dr. Adam Gaffney, critical care physician, professor at Harvard Medical School, and immediate past president of Physicians for a National Health Program.
