Program Title: Chronic Condition: Why Canada's Healthcare Needs to be Dragged into the 21st Century
Description: Jeffrey Simpson has been the Globe and Mail's national affairs columnist for more than 25 years. An Officer of the Order of Canada, he is an award-winning author of nine books whose work has won all three of Canada's leading literary prizes - the Governor-General's award for non-fiction book writing, the National Magazine Award for political writing, and the National Newspaper Award for column writing (twice) - as well as the Hyman Solomon Award for excellence in public policy journalism. Mr. Simpson’s latest book, “Chronic Condition: Why Canada's Health Care System Needs to be Dragged into the 21st Century”, examines how Canadian health care is ill-adapted to an aging population, and explores how to tackle this growing crisis.
