CNN AC360 Covers Bronx Health REACH Attorney General Complaint Monday Night 10pm to 12am

Monday night July 20th, on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, Dr. Sanjay Gupta will be airing a segment on racial discrimination that results from separate and unequal care provided by private teaching hospitals in New York City.

The story will focus on a civil rights complaint filed with New York State Office of the Attorney General in June 2008 on behalf of Bronx Health REACH, a coalition of 40 community and faith-based organizations led by the Institute for Family Health. The complaint was filed by New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI) based on the out-patient referral practices of three NYC hospitals - Montefiore, NY Presbyterian, and Mt. Sinai. Dr. Gupta made several visits to New York with his producer and film crews to interview faith leaders, patients, and REACH staff to bring this issue to light.

Please watch and learn more about this so we can work together to end this discriminatory practice. For more information, go to .
