Our Politics Are Killing Us

Doctors train to find the diseases behind the symptoms and signs. But, social diseases, like poverty, are usually hidden behind the ones that afflict our bodies. It’s something that medicine doesn’t often talk about it. And, our politics is what keeps these social diseases alive.

When We Forget Health's Basic Needs

When someone can’t afford stable housing or nutritious food, his health suffers and healthcare costs rise — for all of us. If our country is serious about improving health, meeting human needs will need to be the foundation of healthcare.
