RightCare Action Week



For one week in October 2015, The Lown Institute plans to take action to raise awareness on all things holding us back in a money-centered system and to show the way towards a system centered on people.  You can join the RightCare movement now.  

“Performing unnecessary medical tests and treatments is unethical and unacceptable. We join the call for the medical profession to renew its sense of duty and commitment to patients. We call on health care leaders to recognize their ethical obligation to put patient care first. We call on civil society to advocate for a medical system that is affordable, effective, rational, personal, and just.”
