This special hour-long edition features talks by two distinguished physicians and scholars who toured Oregon recently speaking about health care reform.
Marcia Angell, M.D. is a physician, author, and the first woman to serve as editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine. She currently is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
Arnold Seymour Relman M.D. is a professor of medicine, social medicine and emeritus at Harvard Medical School. He is a former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine (1977–91) and writes extensively on medical publishing and reform of the U.S. health care system.
Both Angell and Relman have spoken out against for-profit medicine, commerical insurance and drug manufacture for many years.
