Speaker Elisabeth Rosenthal Questions the Healthcare System in Her New Book "An American Sickness"
Author, journalist and physician Elisabeth Rosenthal discussed her new book An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back with NPR.
In the book, Rosenthal addresses the faults in the American healthcare system and points out its focus on profit over patients’ needs. She shares with NPR: "We've trusted a lot of our health care to for-profit businesses and it's their job, frankly, to make profit."
From her multimedia series "Paying Till It Hurts" for The New York Times to her work as Editor in Chief of Health News for Kaiser Permanente, Dr. Rosenthal continues to lead America to better healthcare.
