The UW FP Chair references Dr. Lebow...

I'm at the Pacific Northwest Summit for Transforming Primary Care today. This is, as you know, a time of great energy and discussion about the state of medicine in the United States, and the role of primary care in the solution. And, it's a great discussion.

I was pleased to see, early in the day's discussion, a slide presented by Dr. Jim Davis, the chair of the Department of Family Practice at University of Washington which used as a reference the Healthcare Meltdown, by Dr. Jim Lebow!

It was great to see this, since I find so much encouragement from Dr. Lebow and the testimony of his life's work.
