Info

Dr. Mike Magee, a physician and journalist, will speak about his recently published book, "Code Blue: Inside America's Medical Industrial Complex." 

In his book, Dr. Magee applies "code blue", a term used by hospitals for medical emergencies, to America's expensive healthcare system, which consumes one out of five American dollars and has driven health care to top of voters' concerns. Kirkus Reviews describes the book as "a searing and persuasive exposé of America's healthcare system."

In his presentation, Dr. Magee will address the crucial questions, "Why is healthcare so expensive?" and, "What can be done to fix it?"

Dr. Magee trained as a surgeon at the University of North Carolina. He began his career as a country doctor in western New England then rose to executive positions at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia and was Head of Global Medical Affairs for Pfizer Corporation.

He is currently editor of the blog HealthCommentary.org and is on the faculty of Presidents College at the University of Hartford. He is a veteran health analyst and communicator who has advised the U.S. government, the Institute of Medicine, the American Medical Association, the American Hospital Association, and the Association of American Medical Colleges on a wide range of public health and health policy issues.
