Getting to yes on Medicaid expansion

Getting to yes on Medicaid expansion

In this Health Care Half Hour, NCHN Editor-in-Chief Rose Hoban talks with Casey Cooper, the CEO of Cherokee Indian Hospital; Chris Cooper a professor of Political Science at WCU; and NC State Senator Kevin Corbin (R-Franklin).

They discuss the long road of education and advocacy that lead the NC Senate to pass Medicaid expansion and and what it may take to get the NC House there.
