Health Reform Coverage 1993

National Public Radio

Perhaps no other recent topic has received as much attention and been so riddled with misinformation as the initiative to reform health care in America. Throughout 1993, NPR correspondent Patricia Neighmond criss-crossed the nation to define the problem, measure its dimensions, and evaluate the various options. Her reports were uniformly comprehensive and informative. In addition, editor Peggy Girshman and Ms. Neighmond effectively interwove examples and illustrations with often humorous vignettes to demystify the health care system. For effective treatment of a critical national problem, a Peabody to National Public Radio for Health Reform Coverage 1993.
