We hear a patient’s perspective on healthcare from Jean Grover on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast with Rob Oliver.

As a person with a disability, she brings a unique background as a survivor of thalidomide. Her insights into healthcare are spot on.

As you listen to this interview, keep in mind that Rob Oliver had been interviewing people for over 16 straight hours without a break.
