Freedom Can Fix Health Care (Guest: Sarah Lee)

April 23, 2018

Sarah Lee, Heartland’s new research fellow for its Consumers for Health Care Choices project, joins the show to discuss how health care freedom can benefit all Americans.

In this episode of the Heartland Daily Podcast, Managing Editor Jesse Hathaway talks with Sarah Lee, Heartland’s new research fellow for its Consumers for Health Care Choices project.

Lee says she has spent 20 years in communications, in areas as diverse as reporting and editing for a daily newspaper, to core information technology at a state flagship research university, boutique and crisis media and public relations, and leading a communications shop for an organization in Washington, DC.

Hathaway and Lee talk about how health care freedom for consumers can impact a variety of issues, including the choices we have available for our health care and our quality of life.

Reforming the federal government’s process of drug approvals can help reduce people’s overall spending on health care and reduce unnecessary pain and suffering and time away from work, and extend life, but Lee says that’s a huge task—but one that is more than worth the effort.
