Activist Laura Packard on America’s health care crisis

Health care advocate and Democratic strategist Laura Packard found out three years ago that she had Stage 4 lymphoma, and turned her diagnosis into action, becoming a leading American health care activist, traveling the country pushing for better health care laws, and culminating in her appearance this week in a segment with Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention. Most of our discussion is about health care, including how the Affordable Care Act saved her life. Laura is an excellent speaker. I think you’ll enjoy this.
