Medicine Man: The Stan Brock Story
/

On this edition of Your Call, we're discussing Medicine Man, a new documentary that tells the story of Stan Brock, a British-born cowboy turned US TV star who left behind fame and wealth to bring free healthcare to the United States in 1992.

Remote Area Medical has since provided free medical, dental, and vision care to nearly one million people in the US and has provided free COVID testing to underserved communities. Medicine Man examines the shocking paradox of pop-up field hospitals in the world’s most affluent nation, while telling Brock’s incredible story. He passed away in 2018, but his legacy lives on.

Guests:

Paul Michael Angell, director of Medicine Man: The Stan Brock Story

Douglas Blush, award-winning director, co-producer and consulting editor of Medicine Man: The Stan Brock Story

Jeff Eastman, CEO of Remote Area Medical
