Dr. Ninez Ponce, FSPH professor of health policy and management and principal investigator of the California Health Interview Survey, conducted by FSPH's UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, was featured in a video interview Aug. 3 by the American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) about access to high-quality health care in California.
