The Good Doctors: The Medical Committee for Human Rights and the Struggle for Social Justice in Health Care by Professor Emeritus John Dittmer (DePauw University)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Medical Committee for Human Rights was organized in 1964 to support civil rights activists during Mississippi's Freedom Summer. MCHR volunteers exposed racism within the American Medical Association, desegregated southern hospitals, set up free clinics in inner cities, and created the model for the community health center. They were early advocates of single-payer universal health insurance. In "The Good Doctors," celebrated historian John Dittmer gives an insightful account of a group of idealists whose message and example are an inspiration to all who believe that "Health Care is a Human Right."
