Dr. Margaret Flowers – Single Payer & COVID

In the third & fourth segments of a four-part series on “Single Payer & COVID-19,” Dr. Margaret Flowers discusses how countries with single payer health systems have responded to the COVID-19 crisis in comparison with the US response. She also describes what a single payer health care system would look like in the US as well as why she transitioned to full-time advocacy after practicing as a pediatrician for 17 years.

She is an adviser to the board of Physicians for a National Health Program, volunteered as a Congressional Fellow during the health reform process in 2009-10 and is co-chair of the state chapter.
