Cambia Grove to host Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal for a discussion on U.S. health care system
Author and former New York Times correspondent, Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal will be hosted by Cambia Grove Utah on Wednesday, January 22nd for a discussion about the U.S. health care system.
Rosenthal is the author the New York Times bestselling book, An American Sickness – How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take it Back. In it, Rosenthal delves deep into the myriad issues plaguing the health care industry; from incomprehensible medical doublespeak to the predatory schemes of the pharmaceutical industry, Rosenthal’s analysis garnered critical acclaim for revealing how these issues came to be, and what can be done to reverse their deleterious effects.
Breaking down the monolithic business into its individual industries—the hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, drug manufacturers—that together constitute our healthcare system, Rosenthal tells the story of the history of American medicine as never before. The situation is far worse than we think, and it has become like that much more recently than we realize,” wrote NPR.
In keeping with Rosenthal’s fusion of historical diagnosis and systemic prescriptions for the future, the discussion at Cambia Grove will revolve around understanding why the health care system in the United States looks the way it does, and what can be done going forward to improve it.
