Monday, we’re beginning a series of conversations about health care in the country and the best way to get it to the most people. There are a lot of ideas, but we’re going to begin with the single-payer model. Joseph Jarvis is a doctor and a public health consultant who’s written a book about his experiences in the system. He’s also a self-described conservative, which is why he says single-payer makes sense. It’s fiscally responsible, it can be state-based, and health care is a moral issue.
Dr. Joseph Jarvis is a physician and a consultant in public health and environmental medicine. His book is called The Purple World: Healing the Harm in American Health Care.
