Described as a “force of nature,” Ezekiel Emanuel is one of America’s leading voices in the complex and challenging effort to transform how health care is delivered and medicine is practiced. His own experience as an oncologist, academic leader, policy adviser and author has led him to prescribe some provocative cradle-to-grave fixes for what ails our health care system. The common denominator of his ideas: What’s best for patients.

"Why I Hope to Die at 75" inThe Atlantic

"Big Pharma's Go-To Defense of Soaring Drug Prices Doesn't Add Up" in The Atlantic

"Democrats are Having the Wrong Health Care Debate" in The New York Times (subscriber content)

"When is the Price of a Drug Unjust? The Average Lifetime Earnings Standard" in Health Affairs
