Against the Grain

Peer-to-Peer Health Support

Healthcare under capitalism can involve expensive visits to trained professionals. What would a system of peer-to-peer caregiving outside the cash nexus look like? Inspired by models developed in Greek solidarity clinics, Cassie Thornton has devised a radical new approach, one that involves three people focusing on the physical, mental, and social health of a fourth (the “hologram”). (Encore presentation.)
