Epidemiologist Abdul El-Sayed Makes the Case for Universal Healthcare in His New Book

The coronavirus pandemic revealed glaring inequities in the American healthcare system, as well as an urgent need for reform. However, despite the tragic toll of lives lost to the virus, healthcare reform remains a politically vexing issue. In his new book Medicare For All, epidemiologist and public health expert Abdul El-Sayed outlines a new vision for public health—and a plan for how to achieve it.  

“During the greatest pandemic in modern American history, Americans suffered worse than our counterparts in other industrialized countries because we are the only ones who do not guarantee healthcare to every person as a human right,” Bernie Sanders writes in the foreword to Medicare for All: A Citizen’s Guide, the new book by Abdul El-Sayed and Dr. Micah Johnson.

 

Together, the respected physicians demystify our notoriously complex system, and in the process, lay out a clear and cohesive plan for something better: universal healthcare coverage. Medicare For All has been praised for speaking truth to power in a way that is clear, accessible, and immediately engaging. It’s a book that, regardless of your political affiliation, will help you think critically about the future of healthcare in a post-pandemic world.
