Where does our health care system stand? What are the challenges and opportunities to improve the coordination and effectiveness of services across the nation? How do we reorient our attention and investments to build a true “health system” rather than the current illness-treatment system? What are the special roles and opportunities for community-based agencies, including Community Health Centres? What about the roles and opportunities for trustees of health and welfare plans? One of North America’s foremost thinkers shares his insights and vision. (#12—Health and Welfare)
