Howard Waitzkin, physician and sociologist, discusses the strides made toward improving people's health in various Latin American countries and how these evolving national health systems could be adapted in the U.S. Dr. Waitzkin is the co-author of the Single Payer health care bill introduced in both houses of the US legislative branch in 2009. Among his other accomplishments, he founded the Civilian Medical Resource Network to aid soldiers, veterans and their families by providing low cost and no cost care for their medical needs.
