Pearls from 04/19/2022 LEADS

Sunday, April 24, 2022

The April 19, 2022, session of Duke Medicine LEADS featured Howard Eisenson, MD and Jonathan Kotch, MD presenting on "[Improved] Medicare for All - Why We Need It." 

Pearls

  • Our current fragmented, inefficient,  inequitable, and very expensive health care financing system is not serving our nation as well as it should and could.

  • A publicly financed, publicly accountable health care system that covers everyone is within our reach.  As part of our professional responsibility we in the health professions should be informing ourselves about this and lending our support to bringing it to reality.

  • "Grow into your ideals so that life can never rob you of them." - Albert Schweitzer
