Kamerow, D. B. (2011). Dissecting American Health Care: Commentaries on Health, Policy, and Politics. RTI Press Publication No. BK-0008-1109. Research Triangle Park, NC: RTI Press.
The intersection of health care, politics, and policy is a controversial one, and this book of lively essays takes on many of today’s hot health topics: alternative medicine, health care reform, screening mammograms, taxes to change behavior, gun control, and many more. Former Assistant Surgeon General Douglas Kamerow, a family doctor, journal editor, and NPR commentator, combines evidence, opinion, and humor in 47 essays from his health policy columns in the medical journal BMJ and his nationally broadcast radio commentaries.
