12:00 noon: Tidings from Hazel Kahan. In her next monthly program, Healthcare as a human rights issue, Hazel Kahan brings tidings from Dr. Sara Battacharjee, a physician specializing in community medicine, in South India. "Like most people, it would not have occurred to me to look to India for solutions to our country s deeply flawed healthcare system," says Hazel, "until I listened to Dr. Sara s vision and saw her work in action in the slums and villages. I came away enormously inspired and eager to share what I learned with everyone I know." Tidings can be heard on the first Thursday of every month. 12:30 p.m. History Counts: The Road to Abu Ghraib.
