Health care is a lot in the news lately, with the American Health Care Act having been passed in congress, there’s a lot of talk about how the changes are gonna affect us… 

How this will work for young and old people; how it will work for pre-existing conditions; how it is gonna affect lower income individuals and families… 

There's a lot to learn about the health care system before we move forward. 

Our guest today has written a new book about the problems that go unnoticed every day in the American healthcare system.  Her focus is not the political policies or insurance companies, but the patients themselves caught up in the complicated maze. 

Dr. Rachel Pearson is a physician and researcher who holds an MD and a PhD from the Institute for the Medical Humanities at the University of Texas. 

Her writing has appeared in Scientific American, The Guardian, and the Texas Observer. 

She is currently a resident at our own Seattle Children’s Hospital. 

And she recently joined us to shed some light on what’s going on with America’s health care.
