Steve Brouwer, author of Revolutionary Doctors: How Venezuela and Cuba are Changing the World’s Conception of Health Care, will discuss his new book at the follow events in Maine and Boston. According to Steffie Woolhandler MD, co-founder of the US group Physicians for a National Health Program, “The Cuban medical educational model, so eloquently described in the this book, has not merely transformed health care in much of Central and South America. It has shown doctors and medical students who work in the unjust and dysfunctional U. S. health care system that another world is possible.”
