Are We Feeling Better Yet?
by Colleen McKee and Amanda Stiebel
In this collection of 21 essays, women from around the country recount their individual efforts to access and receive quality health care within the formidable structure of the U.S. health care system. Their many voices speak with clarity, poignancy, and humor about situations familiar to all who have entered a health care setting on behalf of themselves or loved ones. These penetrating stories cover a spectrum of health care conditions, but they unify around the themes of strong self-advocacy and personal empowerment. The book is an enlightening read not only for the health consuming public, but also for health care professionals and for health policymakers.
