County: Life, Death and Politics — What the lessons from Chicago’s public hospital tell us about health care in the USA
Friday, January 27th, 2012
120 W. Broadway (at Second St.)
Please join us! There is no charge for admission.
Dr. Ansell is an Internal Medicine physician and the Chief Medical Officer at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. He has written extensively about health disparities.
Dr. Ansell is the author of COUNTY: Life, Death and Politics at Chicago’s Public Hospital, a memoir about the years he spent working at the “old” Cook County hospital. The book speaks to our nation’s failure to address the most unjust of all the inequities present in the world’s richest society–that of health inequity.
In the December, 2011, issue of Louisville Medicine, local physician M. Saleem Seyal reviewed County, praising the work as "important and thoroughly engaging."
Dr. Ansell will be visiting Louisville on January 27th and 28th, 2012.

“…we cannot have too many of these stories in circulation, to bear witness, to inform and to inspire.
