June 28, 1994|By Howard Henry Chen | Howard Henry Chen,Sun Staff Writer

The debate on national health care comes once more to WJHU public radio, 88.1 FM, in the fourth and final segment of the live-broadcast series, "Critical Decision: Health Care Reform and You."

Health care experts and audience members will discuss the social aspects of a universal health care plan, including mental health issues, violence and drugs, in a two-hour special of the "Marc Steiner Show," to air tomorrow night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Panelists for tomorrow's program include Peter Beilenson, Baltimore commissioner of health, and Karen Becker, a public health expert for the U.S. Senate Finance Committee.

"The audiences [for the previous programs] have been intimately involved in the health care industry as either professionals or consumers, which has heightened the level of discussion," says Mr. Steiner, the show's moderator and host.

Mr. Steiner says eight more health care forums are planned for later this year.

Tomorrow's discussion will be broadcast from the Baltimore Urban League, 512 Orchard St. It's free to attend, and radio listeners can join the fray during the program by calling (410) 516-9548. For more information or to reserve seating for groups of five or more, call (410) 516-1971.
