From Connecticut - Ensuring Medical Access to the Underserved

Guest: Steven Wolfson
Cardiologist Dr. Steven Wolfson is co-founder of a grassroots effort in New Haven, Connecticut, to bring together 200 primary care and specialty physicians to provide pro-bono care to low-income uninsured patients. The program began originally in North Carolina out of physicians' frustration with the inability to secure coordinated specialty care for patients who couldn't afford insurance. Project Access-New Haven is now one of 55 Project Access Chapters nationwide.
