Arkansas Week January 17, 2020

(Relocation Resistance) A Governor's plan for humanitarian relief and a vocal opposition within his own party. (Boozman '22 A Go) There was always more speculation than suspense. The senior Senator from Arkansas has ended both. (A Diseased System?) From the wealthiest family in the nation, a new initiative for improving healthcare in its native state. (Vaccination Deficit) But first and along those lines, illness in our state. Two dozen deaths and dozens more with serious illnesses and most if not all preventable. An update on the intersection of health and public policy.

Panelists: Dr. Gary Wheeler - Chief Medical Officer, Arkansas Dept. of Health; Steve Brawner – Independent, Journalist; Doug Thompson – NW Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
