Join us for a new four-part series devoted to health and health care in America, as host John Schumann speaks with top health professionals about the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the latest brain research on adolescents, geriatric health, and the social and community factors that drive ill health.

Schumann has been the guest host for StudioTulsa on Health for the past year, and now looks to demystify medicine and health care with Medical Matters with John Schumann, a series of four hour-long shows devoted to contemporary issues in American health care. The programs will air Thursdays at noon, on Feb. 20, Feb. 27, March 6, and March 13, with rebroadcasts on Friday nights at 8pm.
