HMR #60 Sick and Tired

Dr Zieve discusses some of the systemic problems with health-care today with Helene Jorgensen, author of "Sick and Tired: How the U.S. Health Care System Fails Its Patients"

In 2003 economist Helene Jorgensen was bitten by a tick and began a new, unpaid, and full-time jobósojourner through the US health care system. Her five-year odyssey reveals the many inefficiencies and irrationalities that both characterize the system and put lives at risk. In her new book, Sick and Tired: How the U.S. Health Care System Fails Its Patients, Jorgensen takes a closer look at institutional failures at every stage of the health care system, iand offers practical ideas for reform. read more at sickandtiredbook.com.
