Where have all the doctors gone?' asks Dr. Joseph B. Martin. Dr. Martin's life journey has taken him from humble beginnings as a Mennonite farm boy to the highest levels of academic and medical leadership. Along the way, he witnessed many of the discoveries and events central to the turbulent transformation of medicine that began in the second half of the 20th century. As dean of Harvard Medical School, he helped create the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, bringing together seven Harvard-affiliated institutions for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of cancer. Dr. Martin sees a crisis in health-care reform and the "fee for service" system as unsustainable. Come hear from one of the nation's leaders in medicine."
