Tommy Douglas and Health Care Reform

Last week at the meeting of the Society of General Internal Medicine, Drs. Gordon Guyatt and Steffie Woolhandler gave excellent presentations about single payer health care.

Dr. Guyatt emphasized that Tommy Douglas’s 1962 work in Saskatchewan was critically important to the development of the Canadian health care system. America can also achieve a single payer system if we work together.
