In the episode, host Dr. Bob Kaiser has a conversation with Chanda Hinton, founder and executive director of the Chanda Plan Foundation and the Chanda Center for Health. After a spinal cord injury left Hinton paralyzed at age 9, she encountered a healthcare system that was ill-equipped to care for persons with long-term physical disabilities. She founded her organizations to deliver integrative therapy, primary care and other complementary services and resources to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs for persons with physical disabilities. The organization also offers educational resources and advocates legislatively to change laws to remove barriers to care.
