ABOUT THE BOOK: 

Health care policy is notoriously complex, but what Americans want is quite simple: good health

care that’s easy to use and doesn’t break the bank. Polls show that as many as 70 percent of

Americans want the government to provide universal health coverage to all Americans. What

isn’t clear though is how to get there.

 In MEDICARE FOR ALL health care and public policy experts, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed and

Micah Johnson go beyond partisan talking points to take a serious look at the policy and politics

of Medicare for All. This is the first book to offer realistic roadmap to policy supported by more

than three-quarters of Americans and gives readers a deeper understanding of a proposal that

would fundamentally transform the way we give, receive, and pay for healthcare in America.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS: 

Abdul El-Sayed, MD, DPhil, is a physician, epidemiologist, public health expert, and

progressive activist. He rebuilt Detroit’s Health Department after the City’s bankruptcy as the

youngest big-city health commissioner in a major US city. He ran for Governor of Michigan in

2018 on a state-level single-payer platform in a bid endorsed by Senator Bernie Sanders,

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, The Nation, and Current Affairs. He holds a

doctorate in Public Health from University of Oxford where he was a Rhodes Scholar, and a

medical degree from Columbia University.

Micah Johnson, MD, is a physician and a health care researcher, writer, and policy advisor. He

served as a health policy fellow in the U.S. House of Representatives and has advised

presidential campaigns on health care reform. He holds a degree in philosophy, politics, and

economics from the University of Oxford where he was a Rhodes Scholar, and he received his

MD from Harvard Medical School. He is currently a resident physician in internal medicine at

Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
