Dr Philip Caper is one of the founders of Maine AllCare, a non-profit that promotes universal health care. He has been a professor at Dartmouth and UMass Medical schools, served on a US Senate committee on health, and writes a column for the Bangor Daily News. He has also been a guest here on WERU, and a panelist at a health care reform forum we sponsored a few years ago. Last week he spoke at the University of Maine as part of the Marxist and Socialist studies lecture series, taking a look at the larger issues with the US health care system. His talk was titled: “Diagnosing the Underlying Pathology: Dissecting the American Healthcare System”
