Looking Back at Region's Health Rallies and Protests


Kansas City, MO and Springfield, MO – This week, Congress is scheduled to reconvene, and take up what's been an extremely contentious issue this summer: health care. Over the past few weeks, area congressional offices and events have been the target of protests and rallies. KCUR's Elana Gordon and KSMU's Missy Shelton take a look back at some of those events, where hundreds, even thousands, of people turned out across the region to voice their opinions, ask questions, and in some cases disrupt meetings.

Funding for health care coverage on KCUR has been provided by the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City.
