Our founder, board member, and Past Chair Dr. Danielle Martin is receiving accolades for her performance at the US Senate Subcomittee Hearing "Access and Cost: What the US Health Care System Can Learn from Other Countries."
Her defence under pressure of Canada's public system and her recommendations for American reform are being recognized across political divides, indicating the potential for us to overcome bias and personal interest to support a Canadian system that provides care based on need, not ability to pay.
Posted below are links to the Subcommittee video and some of the major coverage:
