I am Don Berwick, nonprofit executive, health care improver, former Medicare administrator, knight, and progressive candidate for Governor of Massachusetts. Ask me anything.
Hi Reddit, I am Don Berwick, former Medicare and Medicaid Administrator under President Obama, founder of the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, pediatrician, and executive. Currently, I am the most progressive candidate for Governor or Massachusetts; I am the only candidate fully committed to single payer health care - Medicare for all, the only candidate opposed to casinos in Massachusetts, and I have put forward bold goals to tackle poverty, homelessness and income inequality.
With Washington in gridlock and the public losing faith in the government's ability to solve large problems, this nation needs a beacon to prove that bold, progressive leadership really can make a difference in the lives of our citizens. That's why I'm running for Governor
One side note: I was knighted by the Queen of England for my work supporting health care improvement in the UK.
Now ask me anything!
Thanks so much -- I'm sorry I couldn't get to every question. I'd love to do this again sometime soon. If you like what you read here, visit www.berwickforgovernor.com!
