Upcoming Campus Event: Universal Health Care: Myths vs. Reality
If you’re near Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, next Wednesday, September 16, I’d love to see you at my talk: “Universal Health Care: Myths vs. Reality.”
The United States is one of the only developed countries that does not have universal health care, a system in which the government guarantees each individual a certain level of medical care. Many, including presidential hopefuls on both sides of the aisle, argue that we should adopt such a system, saying that in countries with universal health care, care is cheaper, of better quality and available to everyone. Do the facts support these claims? What’s really the state of health care in countries like France, Canada, the UK and others frequently cited as models for us to learn from? Should we embrace universal health care as the ideal proponents tell us it is? I’ll explore these critical questions and more.
