Eight Forty-Eight for 06.12.12
Rundown: Caterpillar strike, doctor-patient relationships and volcano!
WBEZ reporter Niala Boodhoo stops by Eight Forty-Eight Tuesday to discuss the ongoing Caterpillar strike and other business news.
Then, we talk about how the relationship between a doctor and a patient can be interrupted by things like insurance providers, specialists, the Internet and rising costs. Matthew Sorrentino, who is part of a group at the University of Chicago working to improve doctors' bedside manner, and Dr. Rahul Khare of Northwestern University, talk about how communication is key. To join the conversation, call 312.923.9239.
And, volcano!, a local experimental rock band, plays songs from their new album, Piñata, throughout the hour.
