Meet a pediatrician who voluntarily surrendered her board certification in order to protest extortion of physicians by the American Board of Medical Specialties, provide better care for her patients, and influence lawmakers to act.

Dr. Meg Edison's story has received more than 100,000 page views at the blog Rebel.MD. She is a private practitioner in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a policy advisor to The Heartland Institute, and a Hillsdale College graduate. Edison joins Health Care News managing editor and fellow Hillsdale alumnus Michael Hamilton to explain how forcing doctors to maintain board certification results in poorer patient care and less freedom for doctors and patients, with nothing to show for it.
