Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 16, 2020 - 8:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

The US spends more than any other nation, nearly $4 trillion, on healthcare. Yet, for all that expense, the US is not ranked #1-not even close. In Which Country Has the World's Best Healthcare? Ezekiel Emanuel profiles 11 of the world's healthcare systems in pursuit of the best or at least where excellence can be found. Using a unique comparative structure, the book allows healthcare professionals, patients, and policymakers alike to know which systems perform well, and why, and which face endemic problems. From Taiwan to Germany, Australia to Switzerland, the most inventive healthcare providers tackle a global set of challenges-in pursuit of the best healthcare in the world.

Ezekiel J. Emanuel is the Vice Provost for Global Initiatives, the Diane v.S. Levy and Robert M. Levy University Professor, and Chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania.  He is a breast oncologist and author of several books, including Healthcare Guaranteedand Reinventing American Healthcare.

David Leonhardt  is a writer for The New York Times. He writes "The Morning" newsletter every weekday and also contributes to the Sunday Review section.

 

Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.  

The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a copy of the book from our website, which you can reach from the green button in the event.

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
