Polly Stryker's Work

Health Dialogues examines the health of Native Americans in California. Have gambling revenues impacted the population's health status? We'll explore the current condition of Native American health, and hear from people doing something to help.

Immigration reform is in the air once again - with President Obama saying the issue will be tackled next year. Join Health Dialogues as we look at what it's like for undocumented and seasonal workers to get health care under the current system, and how immigration reform could change things.

Conversation about health care reform is heating up in Washington. Here in California, we hear from health care providers, patient advocates, employers, insurers and others across the state about how they would tackle this issue.
