About Health Dialogues
Health Dialogues, a special series from KQED Public Radio's The California Report, engages listeners in an ongoing discussion of California health care issues that are important to the underserved: children, low-income residents, minorities, people with disabilities, immigrants, and rural and migrant worker communities in particular. The series seeks to generate and facilitate dialogue between communities, health care providers and policy-makers.
The centerpieces of the Health Dialogues series are monthly, one-hour shows. On KQED Radio, the program airs on the Thursday following the third Tuesday of each month, and again on the following Saturday at 2pm. Hosted by Scott Shafer, the programs include special reports, moderated discussion with a panel of experts, and conversations with Californians who have been affected by the health issue being discussed.
