PBS News Hour
July 16, 2020
Studies show that health outcomes are worse for poorer Americans, but pediatrician Lucy Marcil is one doctor who is trying to change that. Marcil integrates free tax and financial services into her clinical care as a way to improve patients’ overall health — and finds that doing so builds better relationships. She shares her Brief But Spectacular take on re-imagining the doctor’s visit.
Dr. Marcil coordinates Yale New Haven Health’s free tax and financial services program with CCA Medical-Legal Partnership attorney Alice Rosenthal.
