How is it that all other industrialized democracies provide health care for their citizens as a reasonable cost-something the United States has not yet managed to do? In The Healing of America, New York Times bestselling author T.R. Reid shows how they do it, bringing to bear his talent for explaining complex issues in a clear, engaging way. Join us for a very important and interesting discussion when TR Reid discusses The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care at Magers & Quinn-Tuesday, February 22, at 7:30pm.
In his global quest to find a prescription for American health care, Reid finds that it's not all "socialized medicine" out there. Instead, many industrialized democracies rely on free-market models the U.S. could use to cure a health system that has failed us.
