In the 1960s and 70s, most urban centers in the US boasted a thriving array of radical clinics, often linked to political movements such as the Black Panther Party and the Women’s Health Movement. A handful of these clinics remain and continue to evolve, still offering exceptional care today. In the best examples, radical clinics provide working models of respectful, collaborative, and affordable care that is for people, not profit. As author, performer, and practitioner Terri Kapsalis suggests, there is much work to be done both in expanding economic and geographic access to health care and ensuring the quality of the care provided. Drawing on interviews with radical clinic participants and more than twenty-five years of experience as a collective member of the Chicago Women’s Health Center, Kapsalis will offer a vision of what radical health care has been and what it can be.
