On The Edge: Health Care in the Recession

This video, a companion to the report, “Rising Health Pressures in an Economic Recession: A 360-Degree Look at Four Communities,” explores the financial and personal struggles of families who have suffered economic reversals and lost jobs and job-based health coverage during the recession. The video profiles people in three of the communities hard hit by the recession: St. Petersburg, FL.; Beloit, WI.; and Long Island, N.Y. It examines at the grassroots level the experiences of families, employers, safety-net providers and community organizations during these economic hard times.
