NC Voices: Diabetes Part 3

Emily Hanford reports for our series 'North Carolina Voices: Diagnosing Health Care.'

This week we're focusing on health care and the rise of diabetes in northeastern North Carolina. Yesterday we met Miranda Cofield, a 50 year old woman who recently lost her health insurance. She's African American, and she's poor. These factors put her at high risk of developing complications from diabetes. Statistically, Sterling Hamilton does not face the same risks.
