    Segment 1: Health care in America produced by Bill Phillips and Peter Rottman

    Guest: Dr. Peter Millard, physician, the Family Medicine Residency Program at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine

    How do health outcomes in the United States  compare with those in other modern, industrialized democracies?  How do health care costs in the U.S. compare?  How are health care expenditures in the U.S. currently allocated?

    Segment 2: We’re celebrating 20 years of great community radio this month by counting back the years in the station’s history.  Today we’re remembering 2001 with a RadioActive program from August of that year, produced and hosted by myself, Amy Browne and Meredith DeFrancesco with assistance from Helen York and Andy Buckley.   This archived episode of RadioActive featured coverage of the groups “Let Cuba Live” and “Pastors for Peace” as their caravan converged at the Maine/Quebec border with medical supplies that they hoped to get through to Cuba via Canada, in defiance of the U.S. embargo.  Features “play by play” coverage of the civil disobedience that ensued.
