Documentary Film Shows How Good Health Care Can Be Available to All at a Fraction of the Cost

Have you seen the documentary film, The Good News in American Medicine? You may think that statement is a contradiction in itself, BUT this 52 minute film interviews groups of innovative doctors and clinics around the country that are successfully demonstrating effective ways to provide quality health care to all their local residents at a fraction of the cost of neighboring communities. This film exposes the strategies, generosity, leadership and out-of-the box thinking used by these various communities across the nation.
