PBS series spurs nationwide forums on health inequalities

Stanford  University is holding a public forum about health inequality in America, inspired by the recent PBS series Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick? The series, which looks at how race and socioeconomic status--more than personal choices--impact Americans' health, has spawned or supplemented some 150 meetings and discussion forums in local government, philanthropic and medical institutions across the country.
