Flashpoint 7/30/17: 'Detroit' in the national spotlight; Doctors talk health care

Watch Flashpoint Sundays at 10 a.m.

Flashpoint this week focuses on health care reform by talking to a group missing from the heated and confusing debate in Washington, D.C., namely: doctors. We invite doctors on to talk about health care reform from their perspective. 

We also dive into the national attention coming Detroit's this week with the anniversary of the 1967 riot/rebellion and the release of Academy-Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow's new movie, "Detroit." The new, acclaimed movie (96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) held its world premiere at the Fox Theatre on Tuesday.
