Putting the “care” back in “healthcare”

Today’s News & Culture update:

Watch the trailer for “Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare,” an official selection of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

Here’s a description of the film:

“It’s not surprising that healthcare is at the top of many Americans’ concerns and at the center of an intense political firestorm in our nation’s Capitol. But the current battle over cost and access does not ultimately address the root of the problem: we have a disease-care system, not a healthcare system. The film examines the powerful forces maintaining the status quo, a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care.”
