11/05 - The High Cost of Health Care

11/05 - The High Cost of Health Care

Why does it cost so much for healthcare in Louisiana and why are there so many people who don't have health insurance?

Those are two of the subjects addressed when Louisiana Public Broadcasting airs the November edition of its award-winning Louisiana Public Square on Wednesday, November 16 at 7PM. It will repeat on Sunday, November 20 at 4PM on LPB.

This month's discussion will feature excerpts from the Day of Deliberation held on Saturday, October 29 at LPB and Southeastern Louisiana University. More than 80 people participated in the discussions that also included the high HIV/AIDS rate in the state. Panelists included Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals head Dr. Fred Cerise, Woman's Hospital of Baton Rouge CEO Teri Fontenot, State Senator Jay Dardenne of Baton Rouge; and Roberta Madden, director of women's health and public policy for the YWCA of Greater Baton Rouge.

LPB President/CEO Beth Courtney and LSU Media Law Professor Craig Freeman are your hosts.

Louisiana Public Square is simulcast on KRVS-FM in Lafayette and will air on WRKF in Baton Rouge on Sunday, November 20 at 3PM.

For more information, contact Bob Neese or Al Godoy at 1-800-272-8161 or (225) 767-5660 in the Baton Rouge area.

     02/17 - Black & the Blue

What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve?
Last year’s shooting of an African-American male in Baton Rouge by two white police officers re-ignited a national debate on how law enforcement interacts with minority communities. Nationwide demonstrations were ultimately marred by the targeted ambush of 12 white officers in Dallas and the killing of three members of law enforcement in Baton Rouge. What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve? How can Louisiana’s Capital City productively move beyond these events? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on a special town hall edition, “Black & the Blue” Wednesday, February 22 at 7pm; Sunday, February 26 at 1pm and Tuesday, February 28 at 10pm after the State of the Union address on LPB HD. In New Orleans on WLAE, Wednesday, February 22 at 7 PM. (Recorded Monday, February 20)

Our panelists will be:
• Fr. Rick Andrus, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, Together BR
• Darrell Basco, state president of Fraternal Order of Police
• Sharon Weston Broome, Mayor-President of Baton Rouge
• Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge; Public Safety Task Force
• Stephanie Riegel; Greater Baton Rouge Business Report

LPB CEO Beth Courtney and Reverend Raymond Jetson, pastor of Star Hill Church host the program. Robyn Merrick with the Southern University System and Bob Mann with LSU’s Manship School will moderate the discussion.
