              On Friday, March 7 Gerald Friedman, PhD, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, offered a talk on "US Healthcare in International Perspective: Why We Are the Worst and How We Can Get Off the Floor."

This talk was co-sponsored by Missouri Chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program, and Washington University’s Policy Forum at the Brown School, Institute for Public Health, Center for Health Policy, and Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and Public Policy.
