Why is U.S. health care so complicated and expensive, and how did it get this way? We will use the history of medicine (e.g., discovery of DNA) and public health to organize the class as we work through the story of the U.S. health care system. Through lectures, reading, and class discussions of the Health Industrial Complex and its history, we shall shed a little light on why we have the most expensive health care, and some of best and worst health outcomes, in the developed world.
