“Medicine, as we are practising it, is a luxury trade. We are selling bread at the price of jewels… Let us take the profit, the private economic profit, out of medicine, and purify our profession of rapacious individualism… Let us say to the people not ‘How much have you got?’ but ‘How best can we serve you?”
People’s Voice is sponsoring the celebrations honouring the Gravenhurst-born Doctor Norman Bethune, who was a pioneer and innovator in medical surgeries for tuberculosis. Father of the Canadian Medicare practised medicine for the benefit of the majority of the people following his profound humanist and internationalist spirit.
