KQED health show explores prison health care

Nearly a decade ago, a federal judge declared that the health-care system in California's prisons was bad enough to constitute "cruel and unusual punishment." How are things these days? KQED's latest Health Dialogues takes a look at the state of prison health care; included in the show is a tour of San Quentin State Prison's new medical facility, an interview with the court-appointed receiver who oversees prison health care, and a conversation on a proposal for the University of California to run the system.
