Health- Installment 2

Last night on the ride back from NY, I listened to Fresh Air with Terry Gross.  They were featuring an author, T.R. Reid who has recently published a book entitled, “The Healing of America: a Global Quest for Better, Cheaper and Fairer Health Care”.  In it, he discusses the different systems used around the globe and compares some of their strengths and weaknesses.  During his travels, he also was searching for a solution to his bum shoulder.  He highlights the face that the United States is the only industrialized nation that does not have some form of universal healthcare, spends way more per capita than any nation and yet retains lower health standards than many other nations.

If you get a chance, it’s worth listening to- LINK
