Health Writers was founded by Lea Zeldin in the early 1970’s. What began as a simple sheet of information for consumers of healthcare products evolved into a newsletter and, in 1996, a radio program. Lea passed away on April 2, 2009, but her fearless and provocative spirit lives on.
At Lea’s memorial service, everyone in attendance had a story to tell. That’s because she had created community with so many people. Young and old, poor and gainfully employed, people of all colors and nationalities were inspired and nourished by the thoughts and actions of this powerful yet diminutive woman.
The Health Writers collective continues to broadcast the message that healthcare is a right, not an option.
Health Writers would like to thank WORT for allowing us to post the broadcast on this website.
