William Ventres, Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved

A paper by William Ventres and Geoff Gusoff in the recent issue of the journal proposes a new clinical diagnosis of "poverty blindness" for those who consciously fail to take the poor into account. With an acknowledgement that the idea may not sound serious to everyone, the authors lay out scenarios to defend their position. Ventres joined us recently to discuss the article and the genesis of the idea.
