Study Says Better Healthcare North of the Border

A new study out this week offers a new national comparison of the U.S. and Canadian health care systems and finds the current U.S. system wanting.

Doctor Steffie Woolhandler of the Cambridge Health Alliance is a co-author of the study. She is also with a group that is pushing for a national, publicly funded healthcare system in the U.S.

In a conversation with Delores Handy, Woolhandler said Canadians fared better, when researchers compared overall health.
