Mobilizing for Health

Record #:
More than half of the young men in North Carolina who went to local draft boards to enlist in World War II were declared medically unfit, a higher rejection rate than any other state. Responding to this health crisis, the state launched its Good Health Plan over sixty-two years ago. Blackburn discusses how North Carolina transformed itself from a state in need of better health care to a state that is a national leader in medical treatment, education, and research.
