KCBS Radio In Depth
Friday, July 24th
The global Covid-19 pandemic is testing the healthcare systems of countries all around world, and this test is revealing an awful lot about what is working and what isn't. But across all these many national attempts to get healthcare right, who is doing it best? Obviously that question is much bigger than even this crisis, but physician and bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel takes it on in his new book, "Which Country Has the World’s Best Healthcare?” He joins us to discuss the answers he's found (spoiler alert: yes, there's more than one) and how those answers could guide reform here in the US. 

Guest:Ezekiel Emanuel, professor of medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania where he co-directs the Healthcare Transformation Institute. He was also a top health policy adviser in the Obama administration.
