She has just released a podcast to share her experience and gained knowledge of the People’s Health Movement and the interplay of health and the global economy. As a health student wanting to take action, Amma and her student colleagues run Curbside Consult program, a site where students can search, listen, and post podcasts and other media on topics related to medicine and healthcare.
The podcast is now available. (Scroll down and click the play button on the People’s Health Movement.)
