Bold ideas for health-care reform


Today on rabble book lounge, our subject is health-care reform. Last month, the Broadbent Institute held their annual Progress Summit in Ottawa.

One of their speakers was Dr. Danielle Martin, a family doctor at Women's College Hospital in Toronto, and also a major voice in the national conversation about health care in Canada.

She's written a book called 'Better Now: Six Big Ideas to Improve Health Care for All'. She talks about the ideas which shaped the book in her presentation, called Bold Ideas for Healthcare Reform.
