Physician answers questions about healthcare and healthcare reform

by

I saw this article: http://www.eugeneweekly.com/2009/08/27/coverstory2.html when I was in Eugene last weekend (apologies for the long link, I’m still figuring out how to work this blog contraption). It’s no New York Times and it’s clear where he stands on the healthcare debate, but I think the physician, Dr. Todd Huffman, did a good job talking about healthcare statistics in the US. For example, the US has the highest per-person medical bill in the world ($7000/person/year) but lag far behind many other countries in critical health statistics like infant mortality and life expectancy.
