This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 3. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- We begin a special weeklong series, "Here's to you 2022." All week we'll have conversations with big thinkers and players from politics to health care, innovation and education. We're asking: What will make Greater Boston "greater" in 2022? We begin with health care — and how the surge in hospitalizations impacts local community hospitals. WBUR health reporter Martha Bebinger takes us inside the emergency room at the Cambridge Health Alliance hospital in Everett.
- Big picture, what's the early diagnosis for what we can expect and hope for in health care? What's ahead for community health centers? Also, the mental and physical health of health care workers? And what are they dreaming up in all those life science buildings popping up throughout Greater Boston? We'll look ahead with WBUR's Martha Bebinger and Michael Curry, CEO of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers.
- Whether you live in Boston or the suburbs, there are major challenges: racism, public safety, opioids and affordability, to name a few. We're digging deep into how to move conversations forward and get to solutions for all of us. We'll discuss with former Boston mayoral candidate and outgoing City Councilor Andrea Campbell, and Tito Jackson, former Boston city councilor, and CEO of Verdant Medical.
