Podcast 57: Hot Topic of the Times – The Price Of Insulin | Bram Sables-Smith


After a long hiatus, I’m back and doing my best to use new technology… I chose to kickoff this new wave of podcasts with a “hot topic“, insulin affordability and accessibility. The DOC (diabetes online community) has been harping on this for ages, but as the topic is now international news after a recent wave of “published” deaths due to insulin rationing, it was time to chat with the author of Insulin’s High Cost Leads To Lethal Rationing, Bram Sables-Smith.

BIO: Bram Sable-Smith is an independent health journalist based in Madison, Wisconsin. His work has appeared on NPR, Marketplace, Public Radio International and Kaiser Health News, among others. His reporting has been honored with two national Edward R. Murrow awards, two Sigma Delta Chi awards and health policy reporting award from the Association of Health Care Journalists.
