Single Payer, Medicare For All, Universal Healthcare – as these phrases get tossed around the presidential debate stage we get real with Suzanne Garber, whose documentary film, “Gauze: Unraveling Global Healthcare” compares and contrasts healthcare systems around the world to determine what “best healthcare” means and what it really looks like. We talk with Suzanne about her own experience with medical care both in the US and abroad, what she discovered during the making of “Gauze” and why many Americans are choosing to go overseas for affordable, quality care. Tune in for a lively conversation with this filmmaker who traveled to 24 countries and 174 hospitals in search of the best healthcare systems around the world.
