Whether they want to or not, four out of five Americans will likely die in hospitals or nursing homes and the care they get will depend on who is footing the bill. Bill Moyers introduces crusading medical professionals--including staff members of the Balm of Gilead Project in Birmingham, Alabama--who have dedicated themselves to improving end-of-life care by changing America's overburdened health system. Originally broadcast as part of the PBS mini-series On our own terms, Moyers on dying.
