Transforming sickness care to health care

Rebecca Onie at TEDMED 2012 made the case that college and university students can become organized to make a very significant difference helping link patients with community resources. She concluded saying, "I believe that we all have a vision for health care in this country. I believe that at the end of the day when we measure our health care it will not be by the diseases cured but by the diseases prevented. It will not be by the excellence of our technologies or the sophistication of our specialists but by how rarely we needed them. And most of all, I believe that when we measure health care it will not be by what the system was but by what we chose it to be."
