Dr. Debra A. Smith brings to the national healthcare debate a unique global healthcare perspective based on her multifaceted experiences. A physician and economist, she has worked in clinical medicine, medical administration and insurance underwriting, and as a consultant in healthcare financing and public health for the World Bank and United Nations.
This has given her a global view on what works and what doesn't which she shares in her new book, Healthcare Solved - Real Answers, No Politics.
