Michael Moore Film 'Sicko' Draws Attention to Prof. Victor Rodwin's Expertise on French Health Care

Michael Moore Film 'Sicko' Draws Attention to Prof. Victor Rodwin's Expertise on French Health Care

Michael Moore's current documentary "Sicko" is drawing attention to NYU Wagner Professor Victor Rodwin's extensive work on the French health care system. The French system is a complicated blend of private and public financing which, according to a Business Week article in which he is quoted, provides a model that might work in the U.S. In the New Republic, meanwhile, senior editor Jonathan Cohn turns to Prof. Rodwin for a better understanding of the French system. Rodwin's book, "Universal Health Insurance in France How Sustainable" -- a collection of essays he organized and which are written by himself and other experts -- was published earlier this year by the Embassy of France in Washington, D.C. Aimed at policymakers in the U.S. and France, the volume grew out of a health care roundtable convened at the Wagner School. Rodwin is Professor of Health Policy and Management at Wagner.
