Stephen A. BezruchkaMD, MPH
Dr. Bezruchka has worked as an emergency physician in the U.S. for 3 decades and spent ten years in Nepal. There he started a community health project a week’s walk from the road and set up a remote district hospital as a teaching hospital for Nepali doctors whose training he supervised. Dr. Bezruchka considers how nations and parts of the world attain their health and mortality status. Even though health in the United States is now declining absoluty despite having been one of the healthiest nations 70 years ago, no attention is being paid to consider upstream causes which are mostly economic and political.
