Unifying Health Services in a County Divided

Hosted by

Los Angeles County provides health services to hundreds of thousands of people. The annual cost is $8 billion. Some years ago, mental health, public health and medical services were divided into three separate departments. Now, the Board of Supervisors has voted unanimously to bring them back together again. We speak with proponents and opponents of the change.
