Low-Cost Health Care is not the Only Issue
Thank you, Dr. Nielsen, for your leadership in bringing us to these crucial moments in the history of medicine. In my year as AMA President, I will carry this fight forward.
But first, I'd like to share a few thoughts this evening about the Evolution of Medicine-the Art and the Science that make it useful-and the Ethics that make it meaningful.
Evolution is a fitting theme, since this year marks the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin. But I am not going to address the Origin of Species. Instead, I'd like to talk about evolution as a trait of an Individual, an Organization, a Profession and a Society.
