While the law won’t go into effect until 2018, Kojo explores what the bipartisan measure means for Maryland with two health professionals who advocated for the bill.
- Peter Beilenson CEO, Evergreen Health Cooperative; Former Health Officer, Howard County (Md.)
- Dr. Jamila Perritt Medical Director, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C.
