CAH Distinguished Lecture: Dr. Danielle Martin - Better Now: How we can Improve Healthcare for Seniors

The Centre on Aging and Health is hosting Dr. Danielle Martin, Women's College Hospital and University of Toronto, for our 2017-2018 distinguished lecture.

Dr. Martin is author of "Better Now: Six Ideas to Improve Health Care for All Canadians."

Her testimony before a U.S. Senate subcommittee (about Canada's health care system) had millions of views on YouTube. The video gained traction after being shared by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.

The University of Regina Bookstore will have copies of Dr. Martin's book on site and Dr. Martin will be available to sign copies.

Dr. Martin will discuss how to improve health care for seniors in Canada. Her talk is based off her book Better Now: Six Big Ideas to Improve Health Care for all Canadians. Canada's health care system was built on a promise that we can all be proud of: the promise of access to services based on need, rather than the ability to pay. According to Dr. Martin, in order to deliver on that promise, especially for seniors, Medicare needs to be improved. In this talk, Dr. Martin will argue that we can do better. Now.
