Better Now: Six Big Ideas to Improve Health Care
for All Canadians
Dr. Danielle Martin
Acclaimed Physician and Health Care Expert
Sunday February 4, 2018
9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
The Beanfield Centre (at Exhibition Place), Toronto, ON
Her video testimony on the merits of Canadian vs. American health systems in a U.S. Senate Subcommittee hearing in Washington, with Senator Richard Burr and Bernie Sanders, went viral and has since achieved over 31 million views. In a recent Facebook Live interview with Sanders, Dr. Martin expressed her support for the Medicare For All bill, which would introduce a single-payer health care system also in the U.S.
Currently, Dr. Martin practices in the Family Practice Health Centre at Women’s College Hospital where she is also the Vice-President of Medical Affairs and Health System Solutions. She is also author of Better Now: Six Big Ideas to Improve Health Care for All Canadians, published in early 2017
In 2006, her first year of practice, Dr. Martin helped launch Canadian Doctors for Medicare, representing Canadian physicians who believe in a high quality, equitable and sustainable health system, and chaired its board until 2013. She went on to help found the WCH Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care – a hub of innovation dedicated to solving the health gaps in our system.
In 2015, Dr. Martin was named Canada’s eighth most powerful doctor by The Medical Post, and in 2013 was named one of The Toronto Star’s top “13 People to Watch”. She appears regularly on CBC News Network’s Morning Show with Heather Hiscox, writes a monthly column for Chatelaine magazine and has been featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered and in USA Today.
