When Healthcare Hurts is an evidence-based, critical look at the potential promise and perils of global health initiatives. Greg Seager, Founder and CEO of Christian Health Service Corps, asks thought-provoking questions about global health projects that can illuminate areas of needed improvement and uncover some of our own harmful biases.
