Close-ups

Close-Ups focus on the personal side of medicine. A patient's story, told in his or her own words, is accompanied by commentary from the patient's physician and resources to help physicians and patients. The goal is to keep the focus on the person, not just the illness, and the nuances of the doctor-patient relationship.
