"In Sickness and in Wealth"

Is Inequality Making Us Sick? - travels to Louisville, Kentucky, not to examine health care but to discover what makes us sick in the first place. The lives of a CEO, lab superisor, janitor and unemployed mother illustrate how social class shapes access to power, resources and opportunity, resulting in a health-wealth gradient. On average, people at the top live longer, healthier lives. Thoseat the bottom are more disempowered, get sicker more often and die sooner. Most of us fall somewhere in between. (2008, 58 minutes)
