CPC Fellow Siddiqi's research on Canadian health care referenced in the news

May 20, 2009

The research of Arjumand Siddiqi, CPC Fellow and assistant professor of health behavior and health education, was recently referenced in a news story about Canadian health care.

The story says: "...Siddiqi and Hertzman write (and technology and helicopter salesmen should take note) that redistributing wealth within a society trumps spending more money on health care. In terms of resources, not surprisingly, Canada does better in some comparisons and loses in others."

The story references this article:
