Walter M. Bortz: Is American Healthcare Threatening the Stability of the Nation?
Walter M. Bortz: Wealth Before Health: Is American Health Care Threatening the Stability of the Nation?
Walter M. Bortz II, M.D.
Recognized as one of the country's most distinguished scientific experts on aging and longevity, Bortz believes that the defects of the American health-care system threaten the stability of the nation. He argues that the financial interests of biotech and drug companies have eroded the values of the medical profession and placed profit before human well-being. Bortz makes a powerful case for a new kind of American health care – one based on rigorous science and a fearless acknowledgement of human potential.
