Health and inequality documentaries[edit]

On the documentary/educational video side, California Newsreel produces some exceptional work on the topic of health and inequality, among others. It's framed by scientific studies and includes some of the epidemiological findings discussed in the main article. Natural Causes is of particular note. Unfortunately, there are draconian licensing and pricing issues which limits the availability and reach of this work, but they really are a great resource in the video platform.
