Rhode Island Spotlight on The Safety Net (week of March 21)

Even with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, tens of thousands of Rhode Islanders still have no medical coverage - often going without, or winding up at a local hospital emergency room.

For the past 15 years The Rhode Island Free Clinic has been the safety net for some of the state’s most vulnerable residents, through a vast network of volunteer medical professionals and corporate donors.

The Safety Net may be seen on Rhode Island PBS on the following dates and times this week:
