When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For close to 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
New World Notes - Class, Health, & Health Care (Part 2 of 2)
This week on New World Notes: radio program #247, November 27, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst replays Part 2 of an interview with health care reformer Dr. Susan Rosenthal, author of Sick and Sicker.
This week she discusses the horrors of life in England during the Industrial Revolution (ca. 1845), the problems with Canada's single-payer healthcare system (though it's still better than the U.S. system), how the profit motive and computers have brought us "assembly-line medicine," and the health-care reforms established in Chile, under Allende, in the 1970s.
This is an "encore presentation," originally broadcast in July 2010.
Susan's book, Sick and Sicker: Essays on Class, Health and Health Care, is available in paperback (from her) or as a "Kindle" electronic book from Amazon.com. For more information on the book--and more by Susan--see her website, www.susanrosenthal.com.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "aegis") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.
