EpiPen is the prototype of what has gone wrong with the delivery of health care in this country. On Thursday’s show we spoke with Dr. Adam Gaffney, M.D.,staff physician at the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Cambridge Health Alliance, an organization with a longstanding commitment to community health and the health of the underserved. In addition to his clinical work, he is pursuing health systems/public health research. Dr. Gaffney is an adviser to the board – of Physicians for a National Health Program, a non-profit research organization of health professionals who support single-payer national health insurance. If we believe in a “right to health” for all, then we need a universal single-payer health care system for all.
