When it comes to getting medical treatment it’s good to live in America. Here we get the finest health care in the world, have confidence in the doctors we see and our hospitals are the best places to be when we’re ill. Not so says healthcare consultant John Leifer.

On this edition of Up to Date, Leifer talks with Steve Krasek to expose these and other myths of modern medicine in this country including this one: we’re the patients so we’re not part of the problem.

Guest:

  • John Leifer is Chief Executive Officer of The Leifer Group, a healthcare consulting firm, and author of The Myths of Modern Medicine: The Alarming Truth about American Health Care.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
