Join us for an upcoming “Subscriber Series” virtual event with the investigative team behind The Healthcare Divide. These special roundtable discussions are open exclusively to newsletter subscribers. Become a FRONTLINE newsletter subscriber to join the event on May 20th, and receive information and access to future exclusive programs.

In The Healthcare Divide, FRONTLINE, NPR, and American University’s Investigative Reporting Workshop examine the market forces and uneven government support that are deepening the healthcare divide, with profits at some hospitals booming, while many others struggle to stay afloat.

From FRONTLINE producers Rick Young, Emma Schwartz and Fritz Kramer and NPR correspondent Laura Sullivan, this new investigation will offer a timely examination of why some hospitals are thriving and others are in dire shape, and what it means for patient care.

On May 20th, join FRONTLINE Executive Producer Raney Aronson-Rath for an exclusive conversation with the investigative team and healthcare professionals Dr. Brad Spellberg, chief medical officer at the Los Angeles County and University of Southern California Medical Center; and Dr. Paula Chatterjee, assistant professor of general internal medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine.
