“Cost of Living” Presented by the Center for Bioethics & Health Law

Alphabet City 40 W. North Avenue, Pittsburgh

In her early career, Emily Maloney worked as an emergency room technician: a job undertaken to pay off the crippling medical debt brought about by years spent in and out of hospitals and doctor’s offices while grappling with life-changing depression.  Doing the grunt work in a hospital, and taking care of patients at their most vulnerable moments, Emily chronicles her interactions and offers  a brilliant examination of just what exactly our troubled healthcare system asks us to pay.
